Foot Pain

These are symptoms that commonly arise from an irritated or injured nerve. If both feet are affected, a neuropathy (which means "nerve disease") could be to blame. There are many causes of neuropathy, such as diabetes and vitamin B12 deficiency. If only one foot has these symptoms, a disc problem in the lower spine, or a nerve compression in the groin, lower leg or ankle could be causing this.
