Numbness in Left Big Toe

Hi All,

For a couple weeks now, I've noticed a persistent numbness in my left big toe. It's not the whole toe, though...just the top right "quadrant," if you will. Basically, from the edge of my toenail to the inner edge of my foot (the outer edge of the toe that's facing away from my other toes), it's just numb. No tingling, no pain...just numb. The total area of numbness is no bigger than a fingernail, really.

I have no idea what could be causing this. The only thing I could think of is that I stepped on a sprinkler spike a few weeks ago and cut the bottom of my foot. That was closer to my smaller toes, though, and out near the end of my foot, so I don't see how the big toe could have been involved.

Any thoughts?

Re: Numbness in Left Big Toe

Just wondering, on your toenail, is it a different color? The reason I ask is because I too have numbness only on the left big toe, however it is not all the time. Maybe it will happen a couple times a year, but the toenail is a little darker. Anyway when I was in phsical therapy, the assistant noticed it and asked the therapist about it and he called a name(sorry don't remember) but it was nothing to worry about. He said something about the blood flow, I think being slower to that toe.
