I found a thread on numb toes here but it was 2 years old and it no longer shows up...
I've had numb toes since climing Pico on new years eve 01
in regular hiking leather hiking boots. It was pretty darn cold (all water even inside of packs froze). It was less than a 6 hour climb up to the top but my toes got numb about 3 hours into it and i haven't felt them since. They've gotten a bit numb on other climbs but always came back on the decent.
I heard of a case of numb toes from a guy who ran the Leadville 100 where this never went away. Does anyone know of anyone else where the condition never went away? Also, has anyone found that their toes are really sensitive to cold even though the toes are numb? Anyone know of any drugs that can help alleviate the condition. I have a foot massager and I'm not sure if it's helping or not.
Thanks for any info. I'd sure like to feel my toes again!
