Question: I am a 56 year old male, with high blood pressure & cholesterol. I also smoke cigars & am a daily alcohol drinker. Recently I've been experiencing tingling in the smaller toes of my right foot, which worsens the longer I walk on it. The symptoms started about 3 months ago and are gradually worsening. What might be my problem?
