    Lack of sensation in tips of toe

    I am a 30 year olf female, and for quite some years now I have noticed that the very tips of my big toes have hardly any sensation.
    I now notice this is true for my pinky toes too.

    I don't have diabetes, nor does it run in the family.

    Is this something common? Or cause for concern? Bad circulation, maybe? I do tend to have cold hands, and I remember even when I was a teenager my feet would turn yellow in the cold.

    Ok, and while I'm at it (while I'm on the foot board here), another question: Sometimes the bone leading up to my small toe on my left foot feels like it is "moving" and painful when I step on it, and sends a tingly sensation to my toe when I step on it. As if some bones were rubbing each other down there. Is that a "bunion"?

    Kathrin

    p.s. Thanks for any input!!!

    I'm having a similar problem in regards to a "tingling" sensation. I posted about it here. Have you seen a Doctor about this yet?

    And it's still going on? I would go to a Neurologist if I were you.

    I would make an appt with your primary (if you have to), then a neurologist. I was dx with MS last year and my main symptoms were numbness in my pelvic region and tingling feeling in my feet. I still have some numbness in my feet. I'm not saying you have it but you may have some kind of nerve damage.

    Re: Lack of sensation in tips of toe

    It has been a few weeks since I posted the original post.
    I tend to think now that the two things are not related. I think the pain when I step on it/"tingly" thing is more of an inflammation or wrong step kind of thing. A nurse friend of mine said maybe plantar fascitis. This I have had before and it lasted for a few months and then it went away again.

    I think the numb toe tips are something different.
