It depends: It depends on the exact cause of the neuropathy. There are several possible causes including some that can be serious. If you have not seen a neurologist, see one asap. If you are seeing one, it is essential that you ask the same question to him/her.

Depends: Having symptoms in your toes and hips means that symptoms involve the legs, degree of nerve damage can be assessed by emg/nerve conduction testing, best to discuss this with your doctor.
