Who wants to play DIS Doctor?

Don't worry, I'm going to a real doctor soon too, I just like hearing what other crazy things people come up with. So basically, my big toe has been numb for a couple weeks now. As in, I can't feel anything when something is touching it. If I poke it with something sharp, I get a pins and needle feeling. The numbness goes pretty much from the first toe joint to the top of the toe. It's not painful, I can move it fine, there's just no sensation. No trauma, no abcesses or anything on my foot.

So far, my friends have come up with some really bizarre ideas, like an ultra slow moving Guillan-Barre, some kind of whackadoo fish toxin, diabetes, and invisible gangrene. My idea was boring, at a pinched nerve or something. So what's your crazy Dr. House diagnosis? And yes, I'm going to a podiatrist, so if anyone really cares, I can update once I get a diagnosis.

Leprosy!

I know it's not rotting yet, but Lepers constantly have to check to be sure they haven't lost any toes or fingers because they are numb. So you must have the early stages of leprosy.


(Non Dr House diagnosis = Pinched nerve.)

Mine isn't Dr. House fun. A bug bite or bee sting that killed the nerve. I had a bee sting that hit my nerve and part of my big toe is numb and the other part tingles occasionally. That happened probably 15-16 years ago.

Not sure, but if it gets worse don't call an ambulance, call a TOE truck

I bet it's a pinched nerve. I had the same thing happen to me and that's what it was, according to the podiatrist. Certain shoes would always make it go numb.

Darn! All the good diseases are taken. I'll go with frostbite.

Good luck, hope it's nothing serious.

OMG! This sounds a lot like what I have! I was diagnosed with a pinched nerve - actually tarsal tunnel syndrome. I have been getting injections every few weeks, and was on anti inflammatories for a few weeks. Still remains to be seen if that will fix me up or not. Seems a bit better.

But my Dr. House diagnosis is lupus (it's always lupus for the diagnosis on House, isn't it? ).

Go see a podatrist, feel better

Another vote for pinched nerve.

http://www.podiatrynetwork.com/subject-n.cfm

Scroll down and look for anything related to numbness in toes, especially the big toe.

Nerves or diabetes.

The feeling in my left foot still hasn't come all the way back from the nerve damage I had about 3 years ago.

Anyway, that's my DisDoc guess.

I have a little numbness on the side of my big toe. I think mine has something to do with me having plantar fasciitis in that foot this summer. At least that is when the numbness began. Have you had plantar fasciitis? If not, my guess is a pinched nerve.

LOL, frostbite in the summer, that's a new one. But what is it they say about frostbite? Freeze in January, amputate in July?

You have plenty more, right?

OP, it really sounds like a pinched nerve to me. Hope it turns out to be something simple!

This is fun!

Check your socks and shoes. I had the brilliant idea to get tight fitting socks to help my flat feet and forgot about them. You know, the kind with compression elastic woven into them. After a few weeks I started to walk with a limp. Then when all my new socks were stuck in the hamper I had a few days without them and it went away, then Yep, I was crippeling myself with new $20 socks

I wonder if your shoes might not be bending your toe in an awkward way or if you are leaning on your foot in a new way, do you sit with your foot under you? New sandals? Do you run? What about when you drive? I say look at the obvious first especially if its just one part of your body and is a new problem.

Come back and tell us what he said or if you figure it out on your own ok?
