My mother's numb feet

My 84 year old mother suddenly has two numb feet.  She was able to walk
miles before, but not now.  Plunges her feet in ice water every night so
they won't hurt.

Doctors tend to dismiss her - she's otherwise in excellent health.  She
believes that since both feet were OK until just recently and both became
numb at same time -- there must be some neural connection - and,
supposedly cure.

Can you help with suggestions?
She's been to podiatrists, internists, cardiologists (it's not a
circulation problem, neuro surgeons - what have you.
