Many patients come in to our office and state that they have lost feeling in their big toe. When you see a podiatrist for numbness the foot doctor will evaluate whether you truly have numbness or the fact that you may perceive your skin is numb. There are multiple instruments podiatrists use to decipher whether there is numbness or not. There are nerve tests we can perform to evaluate what the cause may be. Sometimes we can perform a nerve biopsy to decide whether you may have a condition called neuropathy which has multiple causes. If you have numbness and it is true; it is important for your podiatrist to investigate the reasons. If you have neuropathy you may be suffering from diabetes.
