    I recently was concerned because the top of my left foot became numb. A few days ago I had a pain on the top of my left foot. It felt like a spider had just bit me. I took off my shoe, but nothing was there. Then the top of my foot was numb. I googled the symptoms to see what it could be. I read about vitamin B12 deficiency and other causes. A couple of days later, my foot is now fine. Apparently, I just pinched a nerve. Advice, don’t over react. Wait a few days and see if it is just a pinched nerve.

    After having my baby 3 years ago I have had trouble losing weight, and when I started to walk more is when my feet would swell up to the point of two balloons. My viens in my feet would pop up looking very swollen,and a year ago I statred getting the burning feeling on the top of my feet. A year ago I saw bone specialist about only the pain I was getting in my heels,and the swelling. At that time there was no burning! I was told that the fat padding in my feet is deaerating, and all I could do is get padding..or gel insoles in my shoes. Which I did do……however now the swelling, extreme pain, redness, skin is almost bubbled with liquid, top of feet on fire. All symptoms are not constant, and very depending on how long I’m on my feet..the humidity….rain….!A ny ideas what now is the problem?

      Yes I had PRK Laser surgery last week and have been taking antiobiotic eye drops. Could this be the cause?

    An area ranging from my big toe joint along the inside and up over the top of my foot feels really numb. When I touch it it does feel tingly but I don’t have a burning feelin. I am awaiting an appointment with a neurologist to see if he can shed any light on it. I have to say, if I have been on my feet walking etc. for 3 or 4 hours, then my foot becomes generally very painful. Has anyone got any ideas?

    Before going through all of the possibilities of what you might have, try to remember what you have already done to that entire leg. As yourself some question about change in activity, shoes, or even sleeping angles. The nerves in the body are incredibly fragile. Make sure you are not irritating the nerves in some way. Have you been wearing high heels lately? Have you been excercising a little more than usual lately? Do you play drums? Are you crossing your legs or sitting indian style? All of these things can cause tingling of the the extremities interacting with the brain through the nerve of which is being pinched, tightened about, stretched vigorously, or hit. This may not help your symptoms but will atleast point you in the right direction. Good luck. By the way I too have been getting the same problem. I wore high heels for two weeks on and off and will never do it again. The tinglingness is going away.

      I have a numbness on the inside of my left foot slightly on my big toe. I have had this numbness for 2 days. When I touch the part that is numb I have a tingling sensation in the area. I am not sure if it is serious enought to go to the doctor or not. Any help answer as to what the reasoning is for the numbness?

    I have the same symptoms as Helen. Tingling on the top of right foot spreading to the calf. I was also athletic. The tingling is aggravated by wearing shoes and I’ve had the problem for 1-1/2 months. All blood work for arthritis, lupus, etc. are negative. Any thoughts> Thanks

      This tingling from about the ankles towards my toes started a year ago happening very infrequently, now it is all the time. It tingles and sometimes burns. It is only my left foot. What is happening?

    A few months now I have been noticing from my upper right leg, whenever I stand for long I have a hard time bending my leg to sit. Now I am see that my veins are puffed up and getting bigger. I have a very irritating feeling of numbness, tingling and burning sensation in both my feet. I am seeing a vein specialist Dr. Au on the 15th of June. My Dr. prescribed a cream to rub, not doing any thing. Right now I feel biting and scrawling in especially my right leg. I feel a little constipated lately. I am using a stool softener.

      For many years I have suffered from back pain; untll my neurologist prescribed a tense unit for the pain as I cannot take most medications for pain. This unit has helped me a lot as the pain is very manageable with it. Nevertheless, about maybe a yr, i have been feeling a burning, tingling, numbness sensation on my right leg and right arm. It really makes my life miserable & those who live around me as they cannot help me with this. Even the neurologist stated he does not know what else to do for me. Please, help anyone!!
