I have pernecious anemia is it normal for my toes to be numb or have loss of the feeling in them?

Neuropathy Common: Make sure your serum b-12 is normal. You may need to switch to methylcobalamin rather than the more common cyanocobaliman. Also important are supplementing with folate (folic acid). Many people (40%) convert Folic Acid into the active form methylfolate (folic acid) and need to take it in the converted form. Check with your doctor to see if this applies to you. You may also need pyridoxal phosphate, the active form of b-6. ...Read more

For two days, one of my big toes has been feeling like there was a band-aid or a ring on it. It doesn't hurt, but it feels weird. What's going on?

Someone asked: The same question a few days ago with the 5th toe. Answer is same. 1) make sure there is no strand of hair around the toe....yes it happens and if there is something there it can cause gangrene,
2) if your sure there is nothing around the toe it sounds like you have neuropathy. In a big toe this could be stemming form an issue with your lower back....follow up with a doc.. ...Read more

Why do I get a tingling feeling down one side of my body starting from head and travelling down to toes before a large convulsion (conscious still)?

Need more data: You are describing positive neurologic symptoms that sound episodic and not associated with a change in your level of awareness. Is that correct? If so- "is there any way you can tell a spell will occur? " or "do you get any warnings? " or "is there any way you can bring on a spell? " how long does the spell last? Have you experienced these spells in the past? Does hypo coincide with the spells... ...Read more

I wore high heels to a dance about 6 days ago, one toe is still feeling a bit numb. It feels fine in shoes but numb without. Should I be worried?

I wore high heels to a dance about 6 days ago, one toe is still feeling a bit numb. It feels fine in shoes but numb without. Should I be worried?

No: No, I would not be worried. In all likelihood, your forefoot is probably wider than the shoes you wore that night. That can cause compression of the nerves between the toes resulting in the numbness you are describing. If it progresses, it is commonly known as a Morton' s neuroma. There are other potential causes as well. If it bothers you don't hesitate to be seen. ...Read more

Tight shoes hurt: Whenever you wear tight shoes over a period
of time, there can be consequences such as neuritis, neuromas, pinched nerves and other problems. It is advisable to wear sensible shoes whenever possible. You may want to soak your feet in warm water with salt and then apply a foot cream or ointment containing menthol and arnica. ...Read more

I've had a pinching feeling in one spot in my calf for 3 days when I walk to point my toes but the area isn't red or hot. Could this be a blood clot?

I've had a pinching feeling in one spot in my calf for 3 days when I walk to point my toes but the area isn't red or hot. Could this be a blood clot?

Calf: Does the calf feel tender to touch? Do you feel a bump or lump? Have you been sitting for a long period of time recently? Any difficulty breathing? Any history of blood coagulation disorders? Let us know. If not, unlikely to be a blood clot; could be a strained muscle. But if you have any of the above, would see MD. ...Read more

I have a vibrating sensation at just one point in the bottom of my left foot. The feeling comes and goes. No pain or swelling. Age : 24, healthy male.

Vibration in foot: Hello~ I am sure you are thinking that this is some kind of long tract cerebellar symptom. If it were, it would usually appear with other cerebellar signs of ataxia and asterixis. If you can pinpoint it to one place you will probably find a little lump signifying a NEUROMA. This can easily be removed. Not unreasonable to see your doc for this thanks ...Read more

There: There are several different possibilities for this:
1. If you are having pain when you walk, it could be a morton's neuroma (this is a benign-noncancerous condition). It is basically a nerve ending that gets too big. It does not hurt if you push on it and is treated with steroid injection.
2. If it hurts when you walk, it could be plantar fasciitis also. This is usually more of the whole bottom of the foot that hurts.
3. It could be a neurologic issue; your nerves are sending messages for some reason that are abnormal.
You should have a medical evaluation by a family practitioner or internist to get their opinion. ...Read more
