Customer Question
Hello I am a 33/yo...
Hello I am a 33/yo male. Lately, when standing for a long period of time (15-20 minutes) I experience a slight numbness sensation at the top of my foot. No sharp pain no dull or ache. The "numbness" goes away when I start walking or sit down. It only appears when I am standing for a long period of time.
I do not have diabetes and my blood pressure is normal. Please advise on what it could be.

Hi,

Numbness indicates nerve compression in it's path at a certain position.

So you should opt for physical therapy.

Also do leg stretching exercises.

Take OTC Advil.

And avoid prolonged time of standing in same position.

You should move your leg while standing or walk a bit.

See an Orthopedist for a clinical exam if it persist.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

Your satisfaction is our goal.

I will follow your comments. What should one "typically" look for if it might be related to circulation?
Health Professional: Onlinedoc, General Physician replied 2 years ago

If you develop any skin discoloration,unusual swelling,pain,warmth,tenderness to touch on affected site then it can be related to poor circulation.

Try such self care remedies until you see your doctor.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
