My pinky toe, bone under pinky toe and side of foot by pinky toe has been numb for 2 months. What could be causing this?
May or may not heal.: The area you are having numbness in seems to be totally delineated by the 1st sacral dermatome. The dysfunctional nerves could be in the back's sacral area, the peroneal nerve in the knee area, the lateral plantar and/or the sural nerves in the foot. Something has disrupted the nerve impulse along this route and the result is numbness. To remove all doubt, a neurologist needs to be consulted. ...Read more
Numbness on right pinky toe and side of foot up until ankle bone. No pain at all or other discomfort. Been this way for 2 days. What do I do?
Nerve irritation.: The area you are describing seems to be describing a specific nerve route. The problem might involve irritation of a nerve in the foot. Less possibly, would involve irritation of a nerve exiting the spine in the back area. With no history of injury, look at your shoes and see if there is a possibility of the one being too tight. To remove all doubt, have the problem evaluated by a specialist. ...Read more

Most of the time they will show "sprains" of ligaments or tendons which are "micro" tears in the fibers or ligaments or tendons. With the symptoms you are having it is very possible you may have a sprain. You should follow up with your doctor if you are not better. ...Read more
