Hi I'm not exactly a young person, being 68, but I'm not diabetic. My doctor thinks the strange feeling in my feet - feel sort of numb, although theyre not - and very tight on the top of them is due to peripheral neuopathy and doesn't seem to think there is much to worry about. They also feel as if I've got thick socks on and padded toes. Very wierd. I'd always assumed it was to do with my bad spinal condition but my doc said it's not as both feet feel the same. Does anyone else on here have this without anything else wrong with them? I don't get any pain. I'm just worried. Thank you if you can answer this.

  • I don't have a favorite. As long as they're white and the seam on the toe doesn't irritate me, I'm good to go.
