Sorry to hear about your numb feet problem. Is there any diabetes in your family? Or are you diabetic? Many people with diabetes have decreased circulation in their extremities and some of loss of sensation. Might be worth checking into.

I am sorry... I know it's so frustrating. Until I got my Raynauds under control with a calcium channel blocker, my feet were always numb. Mine was definitely Raynauds because my toes were cold too. I have a friend that has Lupus and Sclero and her feet are numb...but her dr. said it was from the sclero...so don't get worried that you have LUPUS!
YOu just never know, do ya.

I don't have any ideas about what it could be, especially since both feet are affected. My only thought is the raynaud's too, thinking it's a neuro problem... although I'm not Dr Susie
Hope it can be figured out soon...or that the problem subsides and doesn'tgive you any more trouble.

Is the numbness constant - or does it come and go? Mine comes and goes.
Raynauds is very bothersome with my feet. I wear those disposable heaters within my shoes whenever I leave the house. I think the Calcium Channel blockers have helped recovery time, esp in my hands, but not so much the feet. [although sores are fewer]
Does exercise affect the numbness?

As I remember you and I were discussing nerve problems way back. We both had numbness that traveled around. I am wondering if your nerve problem is creeping back in on you. Mine sneaks back in occassionally, like a numb toe or numbness on face. When the heat turns on in the summer, then the feet and legs really become numb. I hope yours calms down soon but maybe you go and get an EMG to get a diagnosis. Susie54

Thanks for letting us know what the doctor said. Sure sorry to hear you have Raynauds. I think it's one of the symptoms that gives me the worse problem.
If you have any further questions, just ask away.
