This category includes the largest number of pathologies and can include the most variation in symptoms. These can include: nerve issues which generally cause burning or tingling, inflammatory problems which are generally caused by overuse or injury or even fractures (AKA broken bones.) There is a common misconception that if you can walk on your foot, it is not broken, but this is not necessarily true. Any and all broken bones need a full evaluation with X-rays.
