treatment for numbness in feet

People with fibromyalgia may experience numbness or tingling in their legs and feet, which may also be present in their hands or arms. This numbness and tingling is called paresthesia, and approximately 1 in 4 people with fibromyalgia will be affected by it.
No one is exactly sure what causes people with fibromyalgia to experience paresthesia. Two possible theories include muscle stiffness and spasms causing muscles to press on the nerves.
These spasms are known as a condition cold-induced vasospasm, where the blood vessels in extremities like the feet and hands spasm and close up. This stops blood from flowing to them and results in numbness.
Numbing and tingling may subside and reappear with no explanation.
