The top of my right foot is numb and has been for a week. I recently had an IV put in during a hospital visit, could this be a clot?

In brief: Unusual

Numbness, limited to the top of the foot, is unusual.
It is certainly not related to an IV started in your arm or hand previously. Consider any new shoes or activities that you have been recently doing. It is possible for a localized nerve entrapment, under those circumstances, see your local area podiatrist.
