I have numbness in my feet and lower legs, beginning about 7 years ago. THe numbness has increased with time. It started with the big toe and now all toes and the ball of the feet. Both feet. I have seen a neuro several times and all he said is that I have neuropathy after an elecrtical test on my legs.
His only advice is that I should use a heel pad , about 1/4 inch thick. I have that and it provides marginal relief. He always asks me if I would like some medication to relieve the discomfort. I said no. The pain is minimal most of the times, but the discomfort is always there.
My feet feel as though there is a rubberband around the bottome of my toes. They usually fell as they are cold, but in feeling them, they are not cold.
I have had blood tests and they came in OK.
I do not know the specific cause, but I did take statins for many years. I am also classified as pre-diabetic. My glucose levels are marginally a bit high.
I have learned to live with the numbness of my feet.
