There are no two ways about it, feet are tragically underappreciated. We rely on them for just about every task, beat up on them just about every day, and rarely pamper them. In fact, most of us rarely (if ever) spend any time at all checking in on their condition. It’s a real shame too because the condition of your feet truly can tell a lot about the overall health of your body.
Doctors get it. It’s not uncommon for a doctor to use the condition of a patient’s foot as a barometer of their general wellbeing. They know that somewhere in that collection of toes, nails, and tiny bones are hidden clues that can sometimes indicate much more serious problems.
Today, we’re going to take a look at what the condition of your feet are trying to tell you about your health, and why it’s probably a good idea for you to start listening to them.
Persistent numbness in the foot may be a cause for concern. Don’t get us wrong, tingling and numbness can occur if you sleep in an awkward position or sit in one place for too long. This may not be a concern but it’s a problem when you experience numbness on a regular basis or when you’re active.
