Numb toe

Dear Cyberdoc,

My 35 yr old huband has been complaining of a numb second toe. He can move it fine but cannot feel anything with it. He is otherwise very healthy. Your respected medical opinion will be much appreciated.

Thank you

Dear Wife
He may have bruised the nerve that supplies the toe - it often will recover by itself, so give it a few weeks' time. He should avoid wearing tight shoes. If he has pain when stepping on the foot it may be a neuroma, a type of (non cancerous) growth in the nerve between the toes and then he may need a referral to an orthopedic surgeon.
