I am Dr.Amita and I would be assisting you with your concern.
Do you have any other medical issues?
GERD or skin issues are unrelated to the issue of numbness and pain in feet .
We need to look into possibility of peripheral neuropathy where the small nerves supplying the feet are unable to function properly and cause pain and numbness.
Many different causes can cause neuroathy.
Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common cause, diabetes is another.Compression neuropathty where nerves supplying feet get compressed is another possible cause.This compression is common in lumbo sacral spine that is the lower part of spine.
You should first of all take Vitamin B 12 supplements and see if the condition gets better.
If this does not better with vitamin B12 supplements other possibilities need to be explored.
Magnesia would help for heart burn but would not benefit the numbness or pain in feet.
It is also useful if one is having cramps in calf muscles.
