The 2nd and third toe on my right foot go back and forth

Customer Question

Hello, The 2nd and third toe on my right foot go back and forth between feeling numb and feeling painful. The doctor x-rayed my back but saw no pinched nerves. Now my toes feel like there is a rubber band around them (near the part of the toe closest to the foot) and today, for the first time, I started having the same sensations in the same toes on my left foot, just not as severe as my right foot.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I don't know. Do you have any examples?
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and connect you two.

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

X-ray may not show pinched nerves in mild changes in spines.

You need a MRI.

As the symptoms are on the both side you should consult a spine specialist.

Physiotherapy can help in initial stage.

You should consult doctor again for a review.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
