It is possible that you are suffering from peripheral neuropathy. This is a condition that affects the nerves in your body outside of your central nervous system. It often starts in the longest nerves of your body, which reach to your toes and your feet. There are many possible causes and it often improves with treatment of the cause.

This could be occurring because your capillaries are bursting or because of some form of psychosomatic disorder. I would recommend consulting your physician.

It could be the circulation in your legs. If you have been on your feet a lot during the day, they could burn from that. Also, if there is a problem with being overweight, the amount of pressure on your feet can cause it.
