    Hi, all.

    I have some curious symptoms, and I haven't been able to gauge what sort of problem it is.

    When I'm sitting down, with my feet planted on the floor, I get a tingling and numb sensation throughout my toes, and all the way across the balls of my feet. I initially thought this might be related to metatarsalgia, but the sensation completely disappears when I'm walking. When I'm walking, I can't feel any sensation. It's only when I return to sitting down, that it reappears. And to my understanding, the aching with metatarsalgia can worsen when active.

    It tends to get more pronounced throughout the day. I've noticed that, the more I walk/run, the stronger the sensation gets; there have been days where I've been at rest and had my feet elevated most of the day, and at the end of the day, I can barely detect any numbness/tingling.

    I haven't noticed any pain; it's just the odd sensation.

    Other pertinent information:

    • I have a mild hallux valgus deformity bilaterally, with small bunions. This deformity has not yet caused me any problems or pain.
    • I'm 22-years-old.
    • I don't have any other physical health problems that I'm aware of.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    I have the exact symptoms when walking but more so when the weather is cold. I tried microcirculation therapy with Doxyva for pain use, so far it seems working. It enhances better circulation that's why I have less pain and numbness these days...

    Haven't you consulted a doctor for the treatment?

    Have you tried checking with your doctors regarding your condition? I have tried the same therapy mentioned by Evah and it worked for me as well. There are times when me extremities get numb and I feel a tingling sensation. It's not really painful, it's just... weird. My friendly neighborhood clinic suggested C02 therapy, but I wanted to research on the matter myself first before I go into any sort of thing. And I came across the product. It provides therapeutic CO2 levels through the skin and at first I thought it was painful but it was totally painless!
