Funny I just came from my foot doc today, I have a condition called naroma, I think I spelled that right,can google it... anyway, with my condition my one toe next to the pinky toe, goes numb, then I feel a burning sensation, and then it causes alot of pain... my doc told me it is a sort of nerve damage... then I went today and she checked both my feet and said I am having early signs of mild neuropathy, for they test your feet and make u close your eyes and touch u with something to see if u can feel it, well after the test she said to spots on each foot, I didn't feel her touching me when she was, I also have diabetes 2... not saying this is what u have, but I would get a really good foot specialist and check into it and let the doctor no about your brother as well... good luck and I wish u the best... angel1662

Any back problems?That can effect your toes,feet,balance. Also Lyme disease can. As I have had both so I know.ask about blood test for B12 B1, Vitamin K, Vitamin D. Strong B vitamins help nerves.google holistic treatment for what your brother has. Also diabetics. Lack of vitamins can be a big problem.if they check for Lyme disease make sure it is a good lab and western blot,PCR testing since MANY as I was get misdiagnosed. Let us know, good luck

I have these same identical symptoms now for 5-8 years. I have many back and nerve issues but my surgeon and neurologist tested and no nerve damage. Untreated diabetes can cause neuropathy or nerve pain. My particular issue is due to lack of blood circulation due to my type 2 diabetes. However so would heart issues. I recommend that you see your physician if you can so to give you piece of mind. Many, many things can cause this identical issue. Good luck with your pain and all the trip to diagnosis.
