Why might my toes hurt, burn, or tingle?

Toes hurt, burn, and tingle for several reasons, but if it’s just one or two of your little digits, the problem is probably the result of a Morton’s neuroma. This is an irritated, swollen, thickened nerve in between two metatarsal heads in the ball of your foot. Pressure and pinching on this nerve causes it to thicken and misfire—creating that burning and tingling sensation in your toes. You might also develop numbness that radiates into your digits. Like any other nerve damage, this does have the potential to become an increasingly painful and possibly permanent problem unless it’s treated early. Nerves are sensitive and unless you remove the excess pressure and decompress them, they might not fully heal. Conservative care early on, though, can be very successful for alleviating the problem.
