Top 3 Numbness in the Big Toe Side of the Foot Causes

  1. 1.Raynaud Phenomenon

    Primary Raynaud phenomenon is a disorder of the blood vessels, usually in the fingers and toes, which causes the blood vessels to narrow when feeling cold or stressed. When this happens, blood can't get to the surface of the skin and the affected areas turn white and blue.

    You can safely treat this condition on your own with conservative measures, such as avoiding cold and use of protective measures and/or quitting smoking. If this is ineffective or you have other symptoms in addition to this, contact your primary care physician when convenient.

    Top Symptoms:

    Posterior Tibialis Tendinopathy is the dysfunction of a tendon (muscles to bones) in the back of the foot, which can lead to having flat feet. It's unclear why exactly it happens, but might be related to poor blood flow and mechanical issues specific to the person.

    You should visit your primary care physician, who can diagnose this condition by clinical interview and exam. Treatment is conservative and involves a cast, over-the-counter pain medications like ibuprofen, and orthotic footwear. Surgery is a last resort.
