This is an odd one but I figured I would take a shot and see if anyone has heard of this.
My left foot and toes started varying degrees of numbness within a year of my accident. (13 years ago)They checked my sciatica and ruled that out, but it was never a big deal. Then about three years ago my right foot started getting the same thing. It's hard to explain, but they feel kind of numb, kind of pain, not on the skin more like the bones. I thought maybe it was poor circulation but the doctor said I still had hairy toes.!
Then about 2 years ago I started getting swollen legs, mostly my right leg, and around the ankles. Lately my toes have been numb and always feel cold (I'm in the frozen north country) since they felt worse I took a look a few days ago and only the second toe on each foot was swollen and red in the last joint. weird..... One toe had a darker spot on the end.
Didn't think much of it but last night I checked again and the wife agreed it looked worse, more purple, like a blood blister. The toe on my other foot seems less swollen.
Naturally, I just had my monthly doctor visit last week.
I did some googling and they did say it can be caused by nerve damage but the location of my injury is not supposed to affect the feet. had a pretty good zing of pins and needles around my big toe last night.
Sorry for the long post but it is different!?
