Our expert says:
Marge, it sounds like you might have a Morton’s neuroma. It is a pinched nerve between the foot bones that causes transient numbness and or pain. You can have it injected with cortisone and if that doesn’t work, you can have it surgically removed by an orthopaedic surgeon or a neurosurgeon. It might also be due to a nerve being pinched somewhere and I suppose there is a remote chance that you have a blood clot somewhere. The best would be to get a second opinion as I can’t really give you a definite diagnosis without examining you first. Good luck.
