Hi, a few days ago I started having a loss of sensation in the center toes of both my feet. There is no pain but it is a general loss of feeling that raidiates towards the balls of my feet. It is more evident on my left foot.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Your symptom is not very specific to a medical condition, but considering your age there is a possibility of peripheral neuropathy as it is involving both feet .

I think you should start taking a multivitamin tablet and get random blood sugar, Vitamin b12 , Serum TSH and NCV done to look for the cause . In case you take alcohol you should try to cut it down. You will need to see a neurologist for the same . Cause needs to be determined before starting any treatment as correction of cause will correct the problem.

Take care.
