Suggest remedies numbness and tingling sensation in heel and toes

is it normal to strain the tendon in your heel and your toes go numb AFTER you have soaked it in ice water for 15 minutes to reduce the swelling and booted it in a brace for over a hour (the foot is completely warm again) and you take the brace off for your toes to go numb and start tingling?

Thanks for contacting healthcare magic.

You have problem of numbness and tingling sensation at toe and heel that may be because of neuropathy. In diabetes more chanses of neuropathy. So check your blood sugar level first.

Any nerve injury or nerve compression also cause numbness at heel area. prope physical examination and history give exact idea.
Consent a physician for further diagnosis.

I hope my guidance is helpful to you..
Take care.

My toe is numb! So around Sunday my toe started to hurt really bad, it started with it filling like my foot was asleep I guess it s the closest way to describe it, pins and needles filling and throbbing, it got worse as the day went on and half way tore Monday or maybe closer to the end it stopped hurting finally, I got home from work and took my shoes and socks of and noticed I couldn t fill part of my big toe. I poked it and rubbed it just to make sure it wasn t asleep, I started pinching and poking my other toe to the point of pain so I could compare and then did the same to the one with no filling, I couldn t feel it at all... I made sure to be rough too... The rest of my foot seems to be ok except not that throbbing painful sensation bis starting to spread out... I didn t twist of injure my foot, leg or back in any way at work or home so it s not that.. it seems to be ok color wise I think, it s pale and when I squeeze it it doesn t regain color as quick as the rest of my foot or toes. I know I should go see a doctor I plan on it but I m not even sure what kind doctor I would see. What is wrong with me?

Hi. I have a gradual loss of sensation (numb and tingling ) in my left leg from toes and spreading across the rump area. went to bathroom, succeeded but i was not able to press or didn t feel it when I tried to press. It came on 3 days ago and when I was constipated. Went to bathroom after two days(bm) . And I thought this numbness would disappear !! As this has happened before. I also injured my knee in early august and have been struggling with the healing !! Since I feel it across my lower bask/rump area, I sort of ruled out a stroke.
