    Hello to you,
    my wife and I have a house in southern Spain. 7 years ago during the hot summer, I had to repair the roof. Because many tiles were loose, I went without shoes. Maybe I burned my feet a little?
    About 7 days later the balls of both my feet became numb. I have the feeling as though I am walking on very thick socks. (A lump) I have never experienced any pain from this, but the feeling depresses me. The numbness is just behind the middle toes and sometimes feels as though it moves a little forward. When that happens, it happens to both feet.
    Recently, I have tried hot and cold pressure but with no success.
    I recently had an operation on my spine to widen the canal. In 2018 nerves from the spine made contact with one another and caused excruciating pain in my upper left leg!
    I also went to a neurologist here in Germany but she had no idea as to what the reason was!
    Whatever it is, I would like to know if it is likely to get worse, also it hasn't changed since it began 7 years ago!
    Kind regards,
    Gomer Evans

    This really needs to be assess by a specialist. It could be any number of things. It could be from the spinal surgery affecting the nerves. There could be any number of neuropathies caused by many different things.

    Worst case scenario, you have lost sensation in your feet. Most people cant stand walking on a hot roof if they have normal sensation. People with diabetes and neuropathy get amputations because they don't feel the pain from an infection and the infection spreads. You should get your sensation checked.

    If you have lost sensation, there are things you can do to prevent harm. Finding out why someone has lost sensation is a lot harder to pinpoint. But, it is important to prevent problems in those that have lost sensation.
