What causes neuropathy in the toes?

Hello, I was diagnosed with neuropathy that causes numbness in my toes. My vitamin B level was normal. I have been having this for over an year and only on my toes. I believe walking aggravates it. I am on synthroid and moclobemide and take triple strength omega 3, glucosamine sulphate and 2000 IU vitamin D and 500 mg vitamin C. I am not diabetic. I would like to know what caused this and what I could do about it. Thanks.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The neuropathy can be related to atherosclerosis and a nerve root compression at the level of lower spine due to a disc related problem.

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

What is the cause of Peripheral Neuropathy, and what is a persons life span that has it in feet and legs? I have no balance, and no Diabetes. Toes have little or no movement, lower legs are ice cold during daytime and very hot when sleeping at night (causing restlessness) this has been ongoing for 4-5 yrs. It ends at my knees. Will this go any further in my body? Was a very active and high level tennis player. Outside activities included biking, boating, walking, and tennis. Cannot do any of these things now, and it is stressful. Is there an answer???????

I have a diagnosed small fiber neuropathy. My sypmtoms include fatigue, constant horrible nerve pain, and numbness. I also experience petechiae from pressure (my arm is covered from the blood pressure cuff after getting my blood pressure taken). I am a 24 year old female. Any ideas for underlying conditions that could be causing the neuropathy?
