Suggest treatment for pain and numbness in the toe

I felt numbness in my right pinky toe area last night and later that night, I started feeling the pain in the joint of the pinky toe. the pain got worse during the day and that area is swollen. My friend told me to go to emergency because I could have blood clog in that area. I took two Tylenol at around 6 pm and the pain is not that bad now. I am thinking whether I should go to emergency or not in case it is a blood clog.

Hi,

I would advise you to do a nerve conduction velocity test. Also take gabapentin group of drugs twice daily.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
