Numb, tingling, burning feet

Hello I have for a few years had numb feet on the top of my foot from my ankle to my big toe and numb across the top of my foot above my toes, sometimes its numb then burning and tingling and when I stretch my toes to a point like a ballerina it feels like it is very stiff inside maybe a tendon or a nerve, Do you have any ideas please, I have been to my doctor asking for about 2 years and still no idea. Any suggestions?

you have dorsal cutaneous nerves that course the areas you are describing.
if you wear heavy clogs like dansko shoes, this could worsen the problem everytime you walk and swing the leg.
if you sit alot for work, you could impinge the nerves.
i recommend taking vit B12 supplements, decrease alcohol intake, and get a nerve conduction study and EMG to rule out impingements.

I have also been experiencing numbness on top of one foot from big toe to top of arch - also hurts when I point toe like a ballerina.  Went to a podiatrist - said it could be from nerve damage (maybe dropped something on my foot) not much to do about it unless I go see a nerve doc which can cause more problems than it fixes & costs $$.  Good luck
