    So i recently experienced slight numbness on right side of surface of right foot. It extends from the ball of the foot to the right surface only and it is only the right 1/3 of the foot surface if you see the foot surface as "left 1/3, center 1/3 and right 1/3". If i scratch from the ball of foot to the right side i feel slight tingling and can feel numbness as opposed to other parts of the foot. Other areas of the foot are fine so only that surface area.

    I do have type 2 but doing low carb and A1c is good.

    I haven't had any injuries but i did sleep with fan blowing my foot for a few weeks - but it would be weird if it is only that side?

    I dont have any other pains and i only notice it if i run my hand over the area. walking etc doesn't have any impact like pain or whatever. I have been wearing my shoe for a while so not sure if it is due to shoe either.

    I dont take a lot of vitamins and i read maybe B12 deals with nerves? idk... thanks!

    Could be.
    BUT, it could be a simple nerve entrapment, so get to an expert and get it assessed.
