Why is the top of my foot numb beside my big toe?


Answer by  lpfirman (403)

Most likely due to lack of bloodflow and/or a pinched nerve. This can usually be alleviated by standing up, or massaging the affected area. If it is persistent, you should consult a medical professional.

There could be a simple reason for numbness in your foot. Did you recently start wearing new shoes? Ill fitting shoes can cause numbness. Another possible reason could be a pinched nerve in your back/spine area.

Numbness most likely indicates a nerve problem. Nerves can be damaged by prolonged pressure, diabetes or injury. A doctor can help determine the cause of your numbness.


Answer by  jg82 (96)

Numbness is usually due to lack of circulation in the area. With numbness in the foot, it is usually caused by inflammation of the nerves, which is usually caused by shoes that are too narrow, too short, or tied too tight. Insufficient forefoot cushioning can also lead to nerve inflammation as well.
