Q: What's the cause of pain on top of my foot just behind my toes?

What could be causing pain on top of my foot just behind my toes? It radiates out from my toes.  It's almost a burning sensation. Not on my skin but inside my foot.  It's aggravated when I walk and hurts almost constantly.  It's also so painful it wakes my up when I am sleeping.  I wear very low heel shoes with room in the top for my toes.

You might want to check out what's called a Morton's neuroma. Morton's neuroma's are caused when a thickening of the tissues surrounding the nerves in the toes compresses those nerves causing burning, cramping, tingling sensations. 


You can find some treatment options for Morton's neuroma at the url below. You might want to check out the Check a Symptom box and see where that leads you as well. In order to get this properly diagnosed, though, you'll have to see your doctor.  Good luck!
