Numb feet can be an unsettling experience and is often caused by sitting still for too long, like on a long plane or train trip. However, other causes of numbness in your feet (such as diabetes) may be more problematic. These causes may be more difficult to identify without the help of your foot doctor.
Do you frequently experience numbness in your feet without an obvious cause (like sitting in one place for too long without moving)? If so, you should contact your foot doctor for further evaluation and proper treatment.
