Numb foot

Does anyone else get numb feet and how do they treat it - I suffer with aching right leg and right foot gets numb thank yoi

Evening Caz62 … I would be very surprised if you have not got a form of Peripheral Neuropathy like me. Up to 55% of people with PD also have PN. I also had a
numb / swollen foot / feet. I take Amitriptyline for it. Swelling / numbness has gone but replaced by stiff aching muscles.

Dear Mr Steve2
I am writing this letter on behalf of Dr Garabedyan, consultant neurologist as he is no longer available.This is to update you regarding the recent nerve conduction study and EMG arranged at University Hospital Sussex. The opinion of neurophysiologist suggested that leg sensory responses are not completely normal
and thus would support a clinical diagnosis of distal sensory axonal large fibre neuropathy. I am aware about the recent start of anti-parkinson medication, and I would suggest continue on this if there is no side-effects.
Regarding the neuropathy, I would be sending some blood forms which I would be grateful if you arrange at your local GP surgery in order to look for any reversible cause for your neuropathy.
Yours sincerely
Electronically checked and signed.
Dr Ali
