I mentioned it a few weeks ago at a GP appointment (I am being treated for Vitamin D deficiency), but she didn't seem bothered - maybe she didn't hear me? confused

Its driving me mad. Its the end half of my right big toe, nowhere else. It's not 100% numb and looks fine, some days are worse than others... I can't work out what's going on and google is being unhelpful hmm

I don't want to make another GP appointment for it in case she genuinely didn't think it was an issue and I'm wasting her time by going back hmm

Any ideas much appreciated!

i had a numb big toe when I had sciatica from a prolapsed disc, could this be something you have?

It seems the most likely explanation but I don't have back pain, isn't that a pre-requisite of sciatica? confused

Last night I had an ache in my leg, focused in the toe, knee and hip... My shoulders hurt as well which usually means I have a problem in my hips? No idea, but if it was a back problem wouldn't I have pain? Happy to be corrected if I'm wrong grin
