Numbness in toes, spasms in little toe?

Hi, initially my left little toe felt like it was in spasms pushing away from my foot. It happened in shoes and slippers first and then happened when I could look at my foot without moving it. I wasn't doing anything. Since then the sensations in my left foot around the tips of my toes and on the top of my foot near my toes. I've seen the doctor and I am having blood tests on Monday to rule things out but he thought it was again about the nerves in my feet and a knock a while ago might just be working its way through.

I was wondering whether any of you had had the same odd experience?

oops - the sensations on the top of my foot and under my toes with a kind of numbness, but touch the foot and the sensations are right.


Hi Sarah-Jane

I am so sorry to read that you are suffering with this horrid pain, and I genuinely hope that you can find the answers that you so desperately desire and deserve. I have sciatic nerve damage and the pain and spasms from this stretch all along from my toes right up through the foot, leg, bottom and into my spine, and it is really unpleasant.

I also get a cramp like sensation in the toes that does not feel like the other nerve damage sensations? It is akin to the feeling you would get after running for a long time? I hope that you find my comparisons useful?

I want to wish you all the best of luck with this.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Yes, very similar but better explained. Thank you. Doctor did blood tests and said I seemed run down. More in four weeks.

I will add the cramps when I speak to him as I haven't mentioned them yet!

Good luck with your next appointment. x


Yes all the above but as soon as

my flare past most of it went away.

I think it's just part of the fibro. Hope

this helps X


Yes thank you. Hope I'm the same. Back really bad at the moment, feet in tune!


Hope it's gets better soon!

Stay strong! X


Hi Sweetheart, sorry you are having problems. I have the same thing at times. It's like my feet and toes have a mind of their own. It's very frustrating. To me it feels sort of like cramps and my toes look deformed in the way they are locked into a very strange position. I've never had any success in getting it to stop. It's strange how it just happens out of know where. Hope someone has an answer to help. xxx Mitzi


Thank you. So far my toes haven't followed the sensations. Hopefully they don't.
