    I'm experiencing constant pain and numbness on the top of my left foot that seems to be getting worse.  What could be causing this?

    Hi T. Kramer --


    The best person to answer that question would be your doctor, since he/she will have your complete medical history and be able to evaluate your foot, leg, and hip to see what might be causing the issue. There are some conditions that can cause the pain you're describing; diabetic neuropathy, pinched nerves, and circulation issues come to mind. However, I'm not a medical doctor and can't diagnose the condition. It sounds miserable, though!  I hope you've seen a doctor and found some relief.


    Here are some links to those conditions and some other information that might be useful.  Best of luck to you!
