About a month ago I was out for a walk on a snowy November evening. I thumped my right foot hard to the ground to shake off the excess snow and then as I went to do the same to the left foot, I noticed something strange. My foot felt like it was asleep but there was no tingling sensation at all. Thinking this was temporary and it would heal in a few days, I ignored it. Well, it's now a month later and it's not getting any better at all. I had a massive head injury in 1981
and that was my first thought. My next thought was that
diabetes runs in my natural family(adopted). My aunt suffers from diabetes and has serious problems with both of her feet. If anyone has seen or heard of this problem before could you please tell me what my prognosis is and if there is a remedy?
Thank you, Dave D.
