My index toe is tingling & burning after wearing a specific pair of flip-flops. I am not wearing the shoes anymore but what can I do 2 treat the toe?

Pinched nerve: The pain could be residual irritation from the pinched nerve in the low back. Alternatively, a compressed peroneal nerve can cause this pain. The peroneal nerve runs on the outside of the knee (fibular head) and when inflamed causes pain in the calf and down to the toes. See a pain management physician for a nerve block or cortisone injection. Neuropathic medicine can help too. ...Read more

See neurologist: Tingling and electric sensations that radiate in an extremity (arm/leg) often are signs of a nerve problem. A disc pressing on a nerve is the usual cause but there are other problems that can cause these symptoms as well. Seeing a neurologist is a good place to start. If you are experiencing night pain, fevers, trouble with your gait, bowel movements or urination see doctor as soon as possible! ...Read more
