Hello,

In my opinion numbness in foot should not be ignored and should be further investigated.

There are chances that their is nerve compression/sciatica/lumbar radiculopathy causing numbness in foot.

It can be related to alcohol intake.

Vitamin B 12 deficiency

Exposure to cold

A clinical examination is required for further diagnosis and management.

X-Ray/MRI of the spine may be useful.

I hope this helps
