Strange tingling sensation in foot

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well, not really tingling, but sort of...well, sharp tingling, if that makes any sense...it mostly manifests itself when walking down stairs, but I didn't notice it this morning, but it's done it a few times while walking around the office, basically, it's just a wierd sensation right at the beginning of my toes when weight is on the foot sometimes. Yesterday it was worse than it is today, and it's only occured since skiing on Sunday...should I be worried, or just wait a few days and see what happens?

Grue,
If it's getting better, it's probably OK to wait and see what happens. However, if it concerns you a lot, it usually never hurts to see a doctor type for a physical exam and evaluation.

Did you hurt your back? The nerve that comes off your L5 vertabrae goes all the way down to your big toe. Do you have a stabbing pain anywhere in your leg?

I don't -think- I hurt my back, I mean, it doesn't hurt or anything. I'll give it until the end of the week, then I'll see Herr Doktor

For my ten cents worth, I had a tingling sensation in my foot, centered along the outside edge of the foot opposite arch but extending from little toe to heel. The edge of th efoot felt numb. I first noticed it at the end of a couple of full on days, after taking the boots off and thought it was pins and needles. However it persisted, but reduced. Started to worry after a few days but nothing fell off so I kept going.
When I got home, asked the Physioptheripist and was told I had pinched a nerve (in the foot) and the sensations could last anywhere from 3 to 12 months. The sensation/numbness slowly reduced and disappeared in about two to three months.
Appears the boot was too tight.
If in doubt, see your Doctor or Physiotheripist. But thats my experience.

Hm, it's possible I set the boot too tight up top, that would make sense, but down on the lower part of the foot, I know it was ok. Hm. I'll go see an osteopath or something perhaps

 Hi 
I read your commentary regarding numbness in your foot that lasted 2-3 months. Did you notice improvement sooner? Also, did you get any treatment? Were you able to exercise? 

Thanks - sorry for the multiple questions. I just returned from a 3-day ski trip and am a bit freaked out from my numbness. 

much appreciated
Eli
