Extreme sudden heat under foot
I experience extreme sudden heat under my left foot at any given time. It feels like a hot coal has been placed directly under my foot but slightly to the inside bridge. I am in excellent medical condition, take no medicine, 40 years of age. Heat will stay for about 20 seconds then dissapear. Sympton starts a month ago. In only suffer from spastic colon but checking my diet for it. Burning sensation will come like 6 times a day. What can it be.

Dear Mitzi

Thank you for visiting

The severe heat that you feel under your foot, can be due to accute vaso dilatation. This is not something to be concerned about but to put your mind at ease, I recommend that you consult a GP for a thorough examination, to exclude any pathological causes.

Kind regards
