Ok guys, I took a trip overseas for a week. While there, I walked and walked and walked. The big toe of my right foot became numb. I figured it must have been from my shoes.
I've been back a couple weeks - and it's still numb.
Reading online, I've learned that this can be caused by pinched nerves in the pelvis or spine. It makes me wonder about pudendal and sacral nerves, etc.
So today I visited my chiropractor. I've seen him from time to time since throwing out my back while golfing 10+ years ago.
I've discussed EA with him, and he said there may be something to nerve compression/entrapment leading to dysfunction. He adjusted my back today, and said that the part of my spine where the sacral nerves are found is sore, and could be the cause of the toe problem. (And maybe the EA.)
My toe is still numb, but I'm icing my back even as I write this. And I'm going to see him a few times over the next month, to try and fix up my back.
Has anyone else had numbness in the legs or feet?
Also, I thought this was interesting, as it relates to the neuromodulation of the spine, which I just posted about. Figured I'd throw it out there.
