Okay so I am a first year teacher, in first grade, so I am on my feet all day long. From 7:30 - 4:30 I probably sit down a total of an hour if that.
Lately, I've noticed that my big toe on my left foot is constantly numb on just the right half of it. It makes absolutely no sense. At first I thought it was a circulation issue, because I wore some tight shoes the first day of school. However, it won't regain feeling. It has been numb since last Monday (22nd) and I don't know if it is something I should be worried about. There is no pain, just an.... awkward feeling when I walk, especially with sandals.
At first I thought it might have something to do with standing all day, but I didn't have this happen during student teaching nor when I was subbing. I just can't figure out what is going on...View Thread
