In brief: Herniated disc

The numbness or neuropathy in the foot may have several possibilities such as a recurrent disc protrusion, ligament and facet growth leading to canal narrowing, low B12 levels, or other reversible causes.
Follow up with a spine specialist to determine the cause of the numbness.
