They put a platinum srew through the joint and after the operation it has always been difficult to touch due to the strange feeling in it. This year (many years later) both my big toes have become numb and cold and very uncomfortable. In fact both feet tend to be quite cold. I'm wondering what is going on.
Oh, usuall if there is a lack of circulation to an extremity you will find some numbness and it will be cold. If I wew you I'd go see a doctor before heading to a podiestrist. It sounds more like it could be an issue with Diabetes. I hope I'm wrong but please get checked.
