I hiked in some aqua socks all day a few years ago wearing a 50lb backpack walking over many pebbles. My feet were stinging on the bottom for two weeks after. This seems to come back every 6 months or so. I just had it recently for over a week and now it doesn't sting, but I seem to feel my pulse on the bottom of my feet and when I lift it, I feel a warm sensation of blood flow. What can this be??
âWarm sensations of blood flowâ in the feet might not be a medical problem. On the other hand, pain in the feet could be considered a medical problem. Pain in the feet can be due to physical obesity, injury, neuropathy or blood circulation disorder. You can request a medical examination by an orthopedist to examine the footâs bones, joints, tendons and muscles. An X-ray image of the feet would be appropriate too. You might also need a medical examination of the vein and arterial circulation. Further, a neurological examination would be necessary to exclude possible neuropathy. Taking a painkiller can help you to temporarily relieve the pain. You can first visit your GP first who can then decide which specialist might be next.
