both balls of feet are numb

The entire balls of both feet are numb… they feel like they are an inch thick when I walk and have very little feeling when I touch them except this odd ‘thick’ sensation.
I’ve recently changed from a desk job to a more physically active position (health reasons).
Can you pont me in a direction on this?
I am 52, 6’3″, 260#, diabetic (non-insulin), have coronary artery disease (3 stents).

  1. You should discuss this problem with your diabetes doctor. What you are describing sounds like neuropathy. You should be very careful with your feet. For more information, do a search for Diabetic neuropathy.If your doctor doesn’t have you see a podiatrist, you should anyway to at least have an exam to identify potential problem areas.
