I have had pain and numbness/tingling in my R foot x 9 weeks. Initial pain occured after running, bruised x 2 weeks. Went to PCP to rule out metatarsal stress fracture- x-rays clear on 2 occassions. I was put in a post-op boot to help keep pressure off and told to rest for 2 weeks. It has since been 9 weeks, and pain has radiated to other parts of foot and front of ankle. Also includes continuous "pins and needles" feeling. Pain oddly seems worse at rest.
I feel great in my back but 10 days post op started getting pain and numbness in my foor that seems to start with the big toe and then involve the whole foot and when really bad some of the lower leg. I had this pain at times pre op. My surgeon feels it is due to a stretching of the L5-S1 nerve rooots as they restored the disc space to original height after 7 years collapsed. I question this because it started so long ( 10 days?) after surgery and seems to start in the toes and spread up vs.

You are having problems from compression of the nerves coming from your lumbar area. The issue is what to do about this? I believe your chiropractor is operating out of his pay grade. Go to the website of Dr. Jerome Groopman. He isn't selling anything, but he has a reprint from the New Yorker on his opinions on dealing with nerve pain issues from lumbar damage. Obtain and Read Dr. Groopman's book titled "A Second Opinion", and his other book "How a Doctor Thinks".

It's mainly in my left foot and for a few months, every toe on my left foot was numb. Now it mainly happens when I drive, as I drive a manual car, but my toes are not numb all the time now. I asked my doctor about it and she told me that there is really nothing that can be done about numbness. It just sort of has to go away on it's own, or not. It wasn't really interfering with my life, it was just more of a weird feeling.
