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. ...Read more

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. :-). ...Read more

Consult with a physical medicine and rehabilition specialist would be appropriate. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

I have been experiencing foot numbness for the past couple of weeks; not pins and needles but a numbness and my foot near my toes feels "fat". What could be the cause?
Symmetric numbness affecting all the toes, often making the toes feel "wooden" or "like balled up socks, " or "swollen" (without visible swelling) can be a sign of a kind of nerve damage called peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy can be caused by many conditions, but in developed countries the most common condition is diabetes. Other things that can cause peripheral neuropathy include infections, vitamin deficiencies, and hereditary conditions. Other things that can cause symmetric toe numbness could include problems affecting the spinal cord or blood vessels.
Because many of these conditions can get worse or result in permanent injury if not detected and treated early, it is important to get the problem checked out. Starting point could be a primary care doctor (family practice or internal medicine) who can determine if neurology consultation is needed. ...Read more
