Do you have tingling in your feet? Does it feel like you are stepping on pins and needles? Any sharp pains or numbness in your toes?
These can be symptoms of a nerve conduction disorder. Abnormal sensations develop when there is interference or slowing of the electrical impulses across a nerve.
There are a variety of tests and procedures that can help diagnose and treat nerve disorders.
Morton’s neuroma is a nerve compression that can lead to sharp pain in the toes. Peripheral neuropathy most commonly occurs as a result of a vitamin deficiency or diabetes. Much less common is a genetic condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT), characterized by a high arch in the foot.
