Numb Toes and pads of feet.

Patient : Hello. A few months ago I was doing some filing in my home office (lower drawers), then took a shower and all of my toes went numb and a little tingly, mainly on the left foot but on the right foot too. It dissipated a little and I did some research and upped my vitamin B complex but after a few days it mainly focused on my three little toes and the pads on both feet (the left pinky toe being the worst). It doesn't keep me up at night and by morning they feel fine, until I start walking around. No real "pain" but it feels a little uncomfortable walking. The condition has not gotten any worse so I don't know if the Vitamin B is keeping it in check or it's just not progressing to anything else. I've done a little research and I don't have diabetes. I do have major lack-of-job stress (not sure if that's relevant, but it started about the same time). Also I've had bouts of sciatica (mainly in the left leg) once or twice a year for a couple decades but went away 3 yrs ago (I'm 48).
