If 1 foot only: Doubt related to diabetes; must make sure you don't have other cause- gout, infection, arthritis, sciatica etc.

Many possibilities: Numbness can occur from various reasons. Some potential causes include vitamin deficiency, nerve damage, nerve compression, and alcohol over consumption, side effects of different medications, or as a result of different systemic medical conditions. Get evaluated by a professional to determine the exact cause of the neuropathy in order to obtain the best possible treatment.
