numb feet or toes

footnumbness posted:
It may be a coincidence however after taking Zicam lozenges for a couple of weeks toes, balls of feet developed some numbness that has not gone away. I have also noticed some muscle issues in legs AND strangely a rather high HDL showed much lower in blood tests.

Anyone experiencing similar issues???

I too have Parkinson's and have the same numbness issues in my toes and bottom of my feet. My neurologist explained to me that this is a symptom of the disease. It is worse in the evening than during the day.

It may also be a symptom of a neuropathy, and different from Parkinson's disease. Would ask your doctor to clarify at the next visit
