Numbness : Numbness that shoots from the big toe up the lower limb and triggered by movement of the toe sounds like neuritis. Neuritis is caused by irritation or injury to a nerve. In this case, the involved nerve could be one of the digital (that's digit as in toes) nerves to the big toe, the medial plantar nerve, or the posterior tibial nerve. Since feet take such a beating, from things including the activities we do and the things we wear on our feet, it is not surprising that the nerves in our feet can be injured. Digital nerves can sometimes become swollen, causing something called morton's neuroma. The medial plantar nerve can be hurt by badly-fitting arch supports. The posterior tibial nerve can get pinched at the ankle, something called tarsal tunnel syndrome. Foot nerves can also be made more liable to injury by other conditions, like diabetes and vascular disease. Podiatrists, who specialize in diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the feet, may be a good resource for foot nerve injuries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My right calf muscle aches, it doesn't feel normal. Its/off. Its not pain it just feels weird kind of like numbness. No other symptoms. Help?

Your medical, family, social, trauma histories will help. So, make an appointment with you doctor to do so, and get peace of mind. ...Read more

Can a calf muscle over compensating for a collapsing foot arch be tender to the touch? Anxiety makes me worry clot but no basis other than calf sore
Serious: Sounds like you have a compartment syndrome. This means swelling in your lower leg compressing the nerves thus contributing to the numbness. This could be so serious as to be thrombophlebitis. This is a very serious condition. Can lead to blood clots. See someone immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
