Pinched Nerve In Toe Numbness
It started with severe back pain and nummness and pain down right leg, chiroprictor made back better, was pinched nerve. Still having pain right thigh?
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
See a neurologist: First determine the correct cause of numbness. After that it may be possible to successfully treat it or not.
Pinched nerve in the seventh vertebrae of my spine and I recently started getting numbness in my toes and now a sharp pain in my butt. R they related?
See doctor to verify: Usually anything related to pinched nerves in the neck (cervicals) have implications with the upper extremities, and likewise with the lumbars. So, normally the 7th vertebrae would not affect your toes. See your doctor, so they can do a mini-neurological check, and see what's causing that, as it may be more related to the sharp pain in your butt, rather than your neck. You need a physical exam.
A pinched nerve at which disc level would cause numbness/loss of sensation over the top of the toes?
Can a pinched nerve in lower back cause numbness on left side of body from mid shoulder blade to toes?
Nope: The lesion would have to be higher up to involve the shoulder blade.
Will massaging or soaking my feet help to make the numbness go away in my toes caused by wearing high heels? Possibly a pinched nerve.
Foot massage: Foot massage is extremely helpful for foot numbness because it increases circulation. Numbness is due to decreased circulation especially to nerves which alter sensation. It's not likely a pinched nerve per se but compression of all your foot structures. A soak and massage should be good....And laying off the high heels may be good too. :-).See 1 more doctor answer

Can a pinched nerve cause Numbness and weakness that comes and go on the right arm/hand and right leg/foot? Also, pain in the shoulder blade/bicep.
Yes: Numbness and weakness in the right upper and lower extremities may indicate nerve compression at the level of the spine. MRI and EMG could localize and prognosticate a compressive neuropathy and would give guidance to appropriate treatment options. Consult with a physical medicine and rehabilition specialist would be appropriate.See 1 more doctor answer
I am experiencing foot numbness and burning sensation. My plantar nerve was removed. Should half of my big toe be numb?
Unclear: Not sure why you had either/both of your plantar nerves removed - nor any past history of relevant diseases associated with a neuropathy. The innervation of the top of the foot and the bottom are different, and the lack of plantar nerve (s) make it more complex. Please consult your doctor who can sort through all of these issues to localize the issue and additional tests to define it better.

Woke up with left arm, foot and face numb. I can't turn my head to left very far. Might be a pinched nerve?
More than a pinch: The constellation of the symptoms described is not due to a pinched nerve unless one was struck with multiple pinched nerves in the neck and the back. An upper motor neuron lesion (i.e. Brain, spinal cord) must be evaluated for immediately. This may be a stroke and time is money. Emergency room now.
