i've had an ongoing foot problem now for the last 5 years. it started with my outer left ankle feeling tingling (pins and needles) sensations. it's gotten worse as the years passed by and it is ONLY on my left outerside of the foot also. now i'm feeling heel pain on my left foot and slowly getting left knee problems. i've seen many podiatrists and orthopedics. the best answer they can give me is that it MIGHT be a pinched nerve but nothings helped. is there anything you can suggest? it is stopping me from living an everyday life. any info will be highly appreciated, thank you.

  • Hi Sorry don't know too much about this sort of problem but I have had pins and needles in right foot before and a feeling of my right heel feeling 'tight' Put it down to walking the dog in the wrong kind of boots as it only did it in a certain pair! what I found sorted mine out was reflexology - lovely , relaxing and well worth the money, it sorted out my problems completely, Give it a go!Nikki 30.10.07

  • It sounds like it could be Plantar Fasciitis or even the start of arthritis. Is the heel pain worse during the first steps you take in the morning or after sitting still for a while? If so try looking up Plantar Fasciitis. If the pain in the ankle and knee get worse I would ask to see a specialist esp. if you have any swelling and/or redness or if the joint feels warm to touch. Hope this helps Kiera
