My right big toe is numb at the very tip, I also have bunions on both feet. Could that cause it? my left big toe doesn't feel numb.

but my right does, & i believe I have had this feeling for like 4-5 years, & it's just been the same. Can that be something bad? can it be dangerous?

I also have flat feet.

Some times when I step on certain things on a certain area of my right foot, My big toe will tingle. Like I bought those "Croc" shoes, & some times, right when I would put it on & take that first step, my right big toe (where it is numb) will have a quick Tingle feeling & it goes away once I take the pressure off of that area. So it's always just really quick.

I only feel tingling when I trigger it like that. & that doesn't happen very often. But my Toe seems to have been numb all this time now, & i'm just curious, is that dangerous?

Also are bunions dangerous to have? I decided to keep them. The doctor told me he'd have to cut my bone & all that stuff. I just said, i'd rather keep them. But besides pain, is there anything else that can come from bunions? or just pain? Has anyone ever had to amputate a toe or a foot cause of a bunion?

thanks guys!

  • I believe that bunions are heriditary. I just modify my shoes, by cutting a hole where the bunion is then glueing and sewing a piece of leather over that. I'd rather modify the shoe than my foot.The toes on that foot sometimes feel numb but there is feeling to the touch. I feel like I have a sock on. When I move my foot I'm aware of the skin over the foot but no feeling in the skin. It's like you would be aware you have gloves on but no feeling in the gloves, obviously.Something to do with nerves.We should get this checke out. What's up with the nerves? and Why.
