Foot numbness

My left foot and toes have been numb for the last 2 years and last week I walk more than usual and the numbness is much worst than usual so I wonder if I should cut down on my walking, get another pair of shoes or what?

Re: Foot numbness

It could be a back issue, it could be diabetes or something, you need to get this checked out and find out exactly what's going on. Call the doctor Monday and make an appointment.

It may take some time to get an answer, but in the meantime, make sure your shoes fit comfortably and don't lace them too tight. You could go to a good shoe store and ask if your shoes are too small. And one other thing: If you habitually cross your legs, try not doing that for a while.
