When I walk it feels like I'm walking on sponges and have no feeling to the ground. Any suggestions on how to remedy that situation?

Thank you for contacting us. IPFH does not diagnose conditions or recommend treatments on line. If you have no feeling in your feet, you need to contact your primary care physician or a foot health professional immediately. This is not normal, and it is essential that you get a professional medical opinion since what you describe is one symptom of possible nerve damage (neuropathy) in your feet. It could also be something else, but the only way to know for certain is to get a diagnosis from a medical professional. The sooner you consult a physician, the better. You can learn more about symptoms and causes of neuropathy at this link. Meanwhile, we hope you will contact a medical professional at your earliest opportunity.
