Numbness In Soles Of Feet
Maybe something else: Neuromas are impingements of the interdigital nerves, and usually cause pain and symptoms and pain in the balls of the feet and toes usually. If a larger area of the foot is involved, it could be tarsal tunnel- a nerve impingment at the ankle. See a podiatrist, as he/she can diagnose this, and help to rule out possible medical reasons for it (like in neuropathy). ...Read more

Otherwise, your doctor may need to perform a physical including serology for thyroid dysfunction. ...Read more

Could be a neuroma: Pain under the metatarsal heads (Ball of the foot) is very commonly caused by a Morton's neuroma.

Cortisone/alcohol sclerosing injections are helpful, then surgery. ...Read more
