Re: Numbness front part of feet

Peripheral neuropathy can be very frustrating for both the patient and doctor. I have many patientswho have this problem and are not diabetic, although that is usually the suspected cause. Other causes can be hypothyroidism, low back problems, vitamin deficiencies and of course, unknown.

Some of the medications that are used by are not the only things are amitriptyline, Neurontin, Topamax, Trileptal, Foltx ( a vitamin combination).

If you have not seen a neurologist, you should consider doing so. There is a book written by John Senneff called “Numb Toes and Aching Soles,” which is quite readable. I recommend you look into it. It is widely available online if you do a search for it.

Good luck.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
