Like "Hoser, I agree with jay 100%. I had the same problems when walking, my feet would go numb. When I finally went to the podiatrist, I found out I had the wrong size shoes. Apparently, although small in stature, I have "fat" (wide) feet. Once I found the right walking shoe (New Balance for Diabetics) my feet didn't go numb anymore. I also take Alpha Lipic Acid that is supposed to help with numbness, and it has for me. "
