Hi I have had numbness in my right foot across my toes and half of the foot for 3-4 days now, before I had a pain in the centre of my foot for a couple of weeks. I have a lot of risk factors for diabetes: overweight, smoke, alcohol... I haven't seen a doctor and don't want to because I'm scared. I don't know what my blood sugar is, haven't had it done for a few years. I know it's not advisable to not see a doctor but how bad is this? And can I still turn it around? I've put on a lot of weight - 2 stone or more I'd guess - in the last few years doing shift work as I struggle to eat healthily or at all at work, resulting in eating too much later, drinking too much etc. I have an active job and I'm sure with planning I could make my diet healthier and lose 1-2 stone with not much trouble. I've done it before. Can numbness be reversed? Anyone else in the same boat?
