Get Tingling and numbness in the  3 middle toes both feet. stopped wearing shoes with heels 3 months. starting to run/walk. Have good shoes. No help.

You have started conservative tx by getting out of the high heels and into wider shoes. Custom insoles with metatarsal pads will also relieve pressure on nerves. Try OTC NSAIDS.

What's better for the foot? Sneakers, sandals, running shoes?

What's better for the foot? Sneakers, sandals, running shoes?

All can be fine: This is hard to answer. It depends on the quality of the shoe, how well it fits the shape of your foot and, most importantly, how well it feels. As a rule, the thicker the sole, the stiffer the shoe, the better the support, the better the shoe is for you. It does mean that other shoes are bad. Using generalities, my best answer to your question, would be a good running shoe. Dr l. ...Read more

Vascular issue: This is not completely clear. This sounds vascular, and I suspect more likely arterial or venous. Your description does not help clarify the distinction. Things to consider is the fact that you're on estrogen, which can have vascular affects and can't even come what times, but I'm not ready to make that diagnosis. You can ask your position whether this can be related to your Crohn's or the therapy ...Read more

Nerve issues: tingling is a nerve problem. It could be coming from anywhere from your big toe up to your lower back. Locally, the nerve could be irritated at the big toe joint by how you walk even wearing the shoes you stated. It also could be a sciatic problem from your lower back. If it gets worse, have it checked. ...Read more

I have plantar fasciitis and spur at ball of my foot. New orthotics have an arch and I walk flat footed. Foot feels bruised. Try to adapt? Damaging?

Give it time: If you have just started wearing the orthotics, your foot may just need more time. Just like anything new, start slowly. Meaning, wear the orthotics in short durations and build from there. If the foot does not come around quickly, see a doctor to check the fit of the orthotic. ...Read more
