Numb Feeling Toes/Ball of Feet

Have suffered this for some time, originally started in one foot, GP checked and said was due to a bunion. It then spread to both feet. GP has now requested B12 & other things, blood test which I am having today. However, I started taking 25mcg a day T3 ten days ago and the numb feeling is going, ball of feet clear and some toes now clear? I will go and have the blood test but wondered if anyone can offer any advice as to what this is? Thanks

Hi, I discovered my 'numb' pad of toe and tingling down my leg went with magnesium oil spray and B12...no idea which one worked but leaning towards the magnesium... Hope that helps

Shelly1954,

Low B12 can cause numbness and pins and needles in hands and feet so possibly the 25mcg B12 has helped although it is a very low dose.

Hi Clutter sorry I didn't make it clear, it's T3 25mch I have started taking and that seems to be clearing the numbness?

Smudger1,

Okay, perhaps the numbness was caused by low FT3 then?

Is that a symptom then?

Smudger1,

Not that I'm aware of but perhaps it is for you.

I used to get terribly numb feet before I got my low B12 treated.

Maybe that is all you needed then. Post what your B12 result is once you get it, as it is often low in us thyroid folk.
