I shall here record all the things that may be related to my issue - I am no professional though.

My whole big toe (both feet) feel very numb. The numbness originating from my big toes dissipitates throughout my top feet area and gets less numb as it gets further.

Most of the peeling of skin is from the two big toes. It's only a little bit though - don't know if this is significant or not. More peeling now seen at bottom of feet - but small also, approx 1cm.

Once every few days, when I walk, I feel quick intervals of sharp pain within the toe - outside portion of toe no pain (or feeling for that matter) as usual. This only lasts for a period of approximately 10mins - I haven't noticed the time this lasts exactly. Other times, I feel like when I walk, as if something is stuck to my toe that wraps the toe itself - though I know that that is the numb parts of the toe itself.

Some hard flesh also seen around numb region of toe, not at region itself. Other toes also experiencing hard flesh and a little peeling.

My blood pulse to the feet seems fine.

So what could be causing this problem?
