Default anybody have medical knowledge?

My foot is numb around my little toe to halfway down my foot, and only on the bottom, started after i worked on a local farm bailing hay. My mom said diabetes but i just drank a medium coke and a monster and feel fine, so i think thats out of the question atleast.

Diabetes is not an acute condition. You don't just get it like a cold or a dehydration. It's a disease you either have permanently or don't have at all. If you have to ask, you don't have it.

If you touch the area, does it feel any different than the rest of your foot (like cold/hard/different color)? If it is normal skin color (pinkish), squeeze it and let go. It turns white when you squeeze and color should return in the time it takes you to say "capillary refill." As long as this works and it isn't cold/hard/weird, the problem is not a lack of circulation. If this is a circulation problem, get off the computer and get to an emergency room now before you lose half your foot.

Which leaves the more likely culprit... you pissed off a nerve. Chances are it is nothing serious but if the condition is not improving, you should get to a doctor.

so, just to be clear:

you are asking a group of ford truck enthusiasts to give a medical diagnosis based on a vague description of the symptoms, and you've already ruled out diabetes because you've just consumed a high-fructose beverage followed by a high-fructose, high-caffeine beverage, and you "feel fine"... do I have that right?

does any part of this process strike you as "odd", or otherwise not in keeping with sound medical practice?

just needed other peoples opinions, beats paying for it online, most likely the same thing, people who have no medical knowledge charging people 45 bucks for their idea, except this is free.

Hey Dhem, Your foot is like a mine canary or a tree frog. It is an indicator body part. It is trying to tell you something is wrong. Mayhap you should take it to a doctor for translation?

Turn off the computer. Get in your car (or have mom drive you), and go to the doctor. Now. You've waited three days too long already. This is not a medical condition. It's an internal traumatic injury. Its not going to go away by drinking a fu$king fruit drink and if you keep waiting, you might as well kiss your foot goodbye.

And BTW, that is my professional medical advice as an Emergency Medical Technician for the last 8 years.

Do you not have health insurance? Why not just go to the doctor?

Really? All the clinics and ER's have been closed for three days? Quit making excuses. Nobody likes going to the doctor. Stop being a vagina and go.
