From this study (11 months ago):
Had no signs of neuropathy until my doctor changed high blood medicine. At first thought I had first signs of diabetes, but took test and I do not have diabetes. Right foot is just the big toe, the left food is the hole ball of the foot. IF I wear tennis shoes, it seems to go away or don't feel the numbness, but take off the shoes and I can tell my feet are just not the same as they use to be. Even tried taking over the counter vitamin B12 (heard that was a side effect.) it worked for a while. I want the feeling of my feet back!!
