I see the terms "numbness" and "partial numbness" being used a lot here but wonder if these terms are being misused. I have a weird feeling on top of my left foot (a small patch closest to the ankle joint). No tingling or pins and needles...yet. My fear is MS. If I take an object and just lightly VERY lightly graze that section of my foot, ill feel it no problem and it'll feel the same on my right foot too. So is this "different feeling" numbness or partial numbness? There's no weakness or anything.
I have cubital tunnel issues in both arms and I can tell you for sure that when it affects my pinky and ring finger, I know for sure it's numb but goes away when I shake it off.
Do we tend to call any different feeling numbness? I just want to know how to classify what I'm experiencing on the top of my foot. Maybe it's perceived?
Thanks in advance.
