3 Bumps

Have you ever had any numb

toes? My 10 toes have been numb for abt 2 yrs or so. My Dr took nerve or muscle tests in my legs which were ok. Then I finally had back surgery and that was the culprit, a very bad 4th & 5th lumbar problem, w/a very bad pinched nerve. Anyway, I'm now told maybe 1 yr or so to get any feeling back. Has anyone ever had this in their toes? It really is a very odd sensation.

  • Not in my toes but the bottom of my feet. Especially the heels. I have diabetic neuropathies. Not only is it numb at times..other times it's incredibly painful. Talk about sucky sensation. Hope you have returned sensation.

  • I was going to say go get your sugar checked. That's usually a sign of diabetes. I also have the burning of my feet as well. Ask your Dr to order a blood test for that just to be sure.

  • I've had blood work and no diabetes. I have had kidney stone 2 x lately and a small cyst on my kidney, hope I'm not getting any kidney problems. Thanks for your suggestions though.
