A few years ago, my feet began to itch from time to time due to my being overweight. I never really did anything except a pedicure at home to relieve my feet of the dead skin that normally accumulates on the bottom and and heels.
Well, a few months ago, I've noticed how now EVERYDAY my feet itch so much on the bottoms and heels due to the loss in nerve feelings--I've even noticed how the back of my left foot is even numb in some spots. I mean, I've literally taken a nail file and just dug it into the back of my foot and didn't feel it until after it was pressed rather hard. I know I shouldn't be doing that...but I just wanted to test it out.
Just wondering if anyone knows what it means or what I could do for a home remedy until I see podiatrist.
Also, if it's related to hypoglycemia/diabetes and what I should do to my diet to relieve the itching and bring some life back to the nerves.
All suggestions are welcomed and advised.
