Night boot - toe numbness?

Posted , 2 users are following.


i was diagnosed with plantar fascitis on last monday and given heel pads and a night splint (boot).

I started using it the same day and slept in it. I made it tight because if i hadnt, my foot would have continued to slip out of it.

the next morning, my second and third toe was numb. Ive continued to use the brace at night and at work, but have removed the angles pad and loosened the straps.

the nunbness started when i first started with the brace, and continues even when im not wearing it.

Any one experience this? will the sensation come back?

    I wake up in the middle of the night with numb toes from the straps, and then kick them off. started wearing the full walking boots lately and don't get numb...just hot. when I cant stand that I push pillows to the bottom of the bed to help keep my feet propped up.
