the big toe on my left foot has had a numb area for a couple of years, but caused no problem– saw no dr. sept 03, bottom ball pad and all toes went numb over 2 days–tingling like asleep–difficulty walking then left hand, last 2 fingers. referred to neurologist. MRI showed no ms. tests showed slowed electo activity in areas also some muscle deterioration in foot. tests showed no diabetes or other discernable etiology. hand returned to normal, foot problem persists. podiatrist thinks may have osteochondroma (family history), recommends 2nd mri. need additional input.
