Default Total loss of feeling left foot

Have been diagnosed with PN and pinched nerve. No surgery as they feel I have to live with it. No feeling in left bottom foot. Can walk using heel and right foot.
Anyone here with similar symptoms?

Do you take supplements for the Neuropathy? I have a lot of numbness in Right foot from Right Hip Replacement disaster, I call it a disaster. My whole right side of body is a mess. I take supplements, use a walker and stretch my body and feet and believe the Grape Seed Extract I've been taking for years, helps and Topricin homeopathic lotion for my feet and joints in my body.

I would consider wearing a foot support and I've been wearing one on my right foot for about 10 yrs since hip replacement. I'm older, 82, and I would not consider foot surgery, talk about not knowing
how things will turn out. You could/will end up with more damage as I see it.

Do you know the reason for your PN? And work to avoid sugars and too many refined carbs.

Where is the nerve pinched and what is pinching it?
Did they say where or show you the images or report?
Spine/vertebra, foot, ankle?
Possibly a good chiropractor could help un pinch things?
Or maybe nerve glides & expert PT?
Depending on the cause, but might be worth a try if you hadn't tried those things yet.
