It has been a long time since I kept up here but I have a problem now and need some advice. Out of the blue, about 2 months ago-my left toes started to tingle and feel like they were ripping. I spent money buying a size larger & a wider shoe, but that didn't solve the problem. I finally called my rhematologist who took x-rays & told me that I have many bone spurs and an extra bone but those aren't the problem.
A week later I got in to my orthpaedist but I got a PA and not the Dr. He totally guessed at a diagnosis and said that I have a pinched nerve in my foot. Told me to buy orthotics, which I did, but they made my foot hurt even more. Last week I called my chiropracter & he has been working on my foot. It does feel better for one day after he works on it but no more than that. Also my chiro says a pinched nerve in only my foot is ridiculous and can't happen.
So, I called for another appt with the orthopaedist and specified that I wanted the Dr and not the PA. That appt isn't until May 3.
Meanwhile my Left foot toes are still tingling and numb and at times feel like they are ripping. Every step hurts! I imagine this is what neuropathy is like but I'm not sure.
Has anyone had anything like this before?
