What's causing numbness and tingling?


Posted by dsneedsrelief

I started having tingling and numbness around the 4th toe on my right foot about 1 1/2 years ago.  The sensations have spread and I now have those sensations mid-thigh.  Just a few days ago it started in the fingers of my right hand.  I've been to all sorts of Drs. and have had nerve testing, lyme testing, blood tests, xrays--all are negative.  I just started going to a foot Dr. who said it was a Morton's neuroma, but after 3 cortisone injections and orthotics, I'm beginning to think it might be something else because that hasn't made any difference at all.  It's not too painful, just very annyoying and uncomfortable.
