its been a week that i feel uncomfortable with this toes. first i wore some shoes which made my feet perspire so much. i was wearing that shoes for the whole day at the office and when i took it off at home, my toes were feeling numb like it was half cooked inside it. so after i have washed it with warm water and massaged, i slept. the next day it was feeling fine. i used a different shoes this time and again, when i came home it was the same feeling. am wondering because i have been using these shoes for months and it wasnt feeling like that when i take it off. only these past few days. we are required closed shoes at the office so a step in kind of shoes would not be acceptable. has anybody experienced anything like this? what did you do to alleviate that feeling? ann

Sweety What you say, may be due to shoe, ok, but i am afraid the reason might be some thing else, your hubby was telling me that your parents had diabetes, your blood sugar level is also on the highter side.. diabetes has so many complications and in diebets neuropathy numbness of feet, toe is common you must go to a doctor, get a conductivity test done to know the condition of nerves.. next start medicines.. Thanks for sharing Have a nice day ahead. Professor ‘@Bhuwan@’. .

In the past I have found that if I wear shoes that have either pointed toes or if the heel is a couple of inches high or had a platform type of sole ... then I was doomed to feel the effects of it later. If you are wearing a heel, maybe you should switch to a comfortable closed flat shoe that allows your toes some room to move about. Whenever I encountered problems with my feet as the result of wearing an uncomfortable shoe ... firstly, I would stop wearing the shoe that caused the problem because the numbness is an indication that blood isn't circulating properly. And I would massage both my legs and my feet, in order to improve circulation. Also if you are wearing a pantyhose that offers some-type of extra support which causes it to be restrictive and tight, that too could cause that feeling of numbness. And if that doesn't help, I would think about consulting a doctor to see if anything else might be causing the problem.

i always wear shoes with 2 to 3 inches heels. got to look nice being a secretary and an admin assistant of the president in a company. but of course when i am sitting down, i put it aside and i wear something flat. yes i think the second advise is good. i would go see a doctor about it. thanks. ann
