What causes numbness and pain in the toes?

I am having numbness and pain in my toes on each foot. Toes # 2 & 3. I have several medical conditions you should know. Fallopian tube cancer in remission, chronic headaches from a compressed trigeminal nerve in the root of my brain (I receive nerve block shots for them), CKD stage 2, Barrett’s esophagus, and hypothyroidism. I also deal with severe fatigue, memory issues and shortness of breath. My question is should I be concerned about this pain and numbness in my toes or is this just a side effect of nerve block shots, especially since I receive about 25 shots up my neck, head and face.

Hello,

Consult an orthopedician and get evaluated.

A detailed evaluation is required to find out the exact cause.

We have to rule out possible neurological causes as it can present with similar symptoms.

An MRI scan is required for further assessment.

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