Is diabetic foot numbness reversible?

Tough question...

Athletes_foot
Some medications like Metanax have been shown to improve epidermal nerve fiber density. This could help reverse the process, but it's a slow process, so be patient... also, sorry but it doesn't work for everybody in the same way.

Several things

Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

What can be done for crushed foot numbness?

Numbness of foot

Foot_numbness
If you had a crushing injury to the foot and the nerve tissue was also crushed, the likelihood of return to normal sensation is low. However, I have found that high voltage electrical stimulation therapy can be helpful with nerve injury and degeneration.

What can I do to fix foot numbness and pain?

Get diagnosed first

Open-uri20121117-19108-1ujpylc
There are a number of things that can cause pain in the feet. This is a very nonspecific symptom. I recommend that someone with pain in in the foot should be seen by orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon for a definitive diagnosis so that appropriate treatment can be started. You can find one in your area at www.aofas.org

Can hyperextending a knee cause foot numbness?

Yes

Extremity-joint-knee
A hyper extension injury can cause a stretch to the nerve behind the knee and that can cause numbness. Usually, however, the nerve will recover but it can take many months.

Dr. Allen P. Lu answered:

Is having a torn acl and foot numbness related?

No

Extremity-joint-knee
ACL tears are isolated within the knee. However, in extreme cases of swelling, the foot can become numb, though this is rare. More likely there is a separate cause of the numbness.

Foot numbness due to diabetes. What should I do?

Seek treatment

Diabetes_mellitus
If you haven't or currently not under the care of a foot and ankle specialist, seek treatment. You should be properly evaluated and appropriately treated. Numbness in a diabetic patient could be the development of peripheral neuropathy which can lead to further complications, seek treatment with a specialist.
