Symptom #2: Numbness in Foot

Numbness occurs when there is a reduced sense of touch or loss of sensitivity to stimuli. It can occur if there is nerve damage or blockage in the blood vessels. Some conditions that can result in numbness include decompression sickness, cutaneous sensory disorder, beriberi, trigeminal schwannoma, and rhombencephalitis.

In piriformis syndrome, there may be numbness of the foot due to the compression of the nerve surrounding the piriformis muscle.
