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?

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 : 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 a large number of 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 possibly 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

Persistant pins and needles with numbness on top of foot three weeks after severe ankle sprain. Nothing helps, ankle feels fine. Treatments? Relief?

Tell your doctor...: After 3 weeks from an ankle sprain, symptoms should have subsided if you've been properly examined and treated. If scar tissue formed in the area, you may be getting compression on an adjacent nerve. Get your ankle examined properly. An mri/ct would probably be best to examine the soft tissue. Your doc will probably rule out structural and vascular problems too. Get checked. ...Read more
