Foot Numbness

My Mom used to be an avid "walker"... several years ago, her feet started becoming "numb" and we went to several doctors, one in neurology, who diagnosed her with peripheral neuropathy with no known cause. Her symptoms are exactly like my carpal tunnel. My research discovered Tarsal Tunnel and I wondered if that could be the cause and if so, is it a podiatrist we need to try next? She is 83 and before this, very active. I feel the medical profession has abandoned her because they think she is too old for surgery (but she is not)....she is willing to try anything. She is not an alcoholic as many have suggested (arrghh). She doesn't drink.

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
