Dead Toes

Last year I noticed the big toe on my right foot was noticeably dead most of the time. I didn't pay too much attention to it because when I was 20 I had an operation to stiffen the last joint which had been broken and was diagnosed as a probable future arthritic problem. 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.
