I would think neuropathy as well. Is she a diabetic? Diabetic neuropathy can cause lessening of feeling to the point that someone doesn't even feel the foot.

But there might be an issue with gait as well, in that she's apparently not walking straight.

Have you take her to a neurologist to determine if neuropathy exists, or to an orthopedic doctor to explore whether or not there are any spinal issues, such as a condition that might involve a nerve which would otherwise govern walking straight?
