    Left foot is feeling numb

    Related Topic
    The left side of my left foot is numb. There is very little feeling. It is not painful and I can walk fine. It does get itchy but there's no relief when scratching because I don't feel anything. I have had no change to my footwear or physical activity. There hasn't been any trauma to the foot. What suggestions do you have?

    If the side of the foot is numb it may mean one of your nerves has been affected at the level of the back, leg or foot. It may also mean you have other medical conditions that affect the sensation in the feet – all of which needs further evaluation. I would suggest you see your GP who can further evaluate the problem.
