Numbness and tingling in toes and feet I have been suffering from a cookie cutter shape of numbness on the outer edge of my left foot including the last two toes for over 6 months. Neurologist said everything was good in a nerve connection test. Numbness

Routine : Routine nerve conduction tests don't check every nerve in the feet. If symptoms are related to the intensity of repetitive activity, such as walking, they may be caused by compression of smaller branch nerves that are not routinely tested by most neurologists. These nerves are frequently affected by footwear that doesn't fit as well as it should. In some cases, nerves anywhere from the spine down to the toes can get temporarily stretched or pinched in ways that are only apparent when the posture (such as being upright) or activity (such as walking) is occurring, and not in the usually lying and still position used in most tests. A podiatrist, a doctor who specializes in only the feet, may be a good place to get information and recommendations. ...Read more

Ive been having chest pain sharp stab directly on my sternum and slightly to the left. Also numbness/tingling in my toes on left foot What could it be?

Unrelated: Sharp pain in a 25 year old female just to the left of the sternum is most likely related to costochondritis although fibrocystic breast disease and fibromyalgia are also possibilities. Numbness and tingling in your foot is called "paresthesia" and is of neuropathic origin and unrelated to your chest. ...Read more

Soreness in calf and shin numbness tingling in toes no bruises or bumps no color change didn't do anything strenuous going on 2 days should I go to er?

ER is not necessary: This sounds like radiculopathy vs. a peripheral neuropathy. Seeing a Neurologist or PMR MD can distinguish using a EMG test. Treatment would include a possible neuropathic pain medication and/or therapy as well as evaluation via MRI for any changes in your spine. While a clot is a remote consideration, this can be evaluated by your primary care MD via Duplex US or the specialists noted. ...Read more

Be seen: I would not hesitate to be seen. There may be more than one condition contributing, or they may all be stemming from one systemic condition. A nerve conduction test would probably be helpful in addition to being seen and examined. ...Read more
