I'm a 17-year-old female who recently underwent ACL reconstructive surgery on my right knee about 11 weeks ago. Since then, I have dismissed many sensations in my legs... but a few days ago I got these really sharp, painful pins and needles feelings in my feet.. I have no idea if it's related to my surgery, but I think it's probably not since I get them in both feet. At times, it is so painful that it's difficult to walk normally (walking only on my heels is less painful but obviously normal).

After doing some research, I found a connection in my medical history to foot paresthesia. About 2 years ago I was diagnosed with mild Spinal Stenosis, which is a cause of foot paresthesia. I also have Scoliosis... but both spinal conditions are so mild that it seems hard to believe they could cause this foot sensation.

I would really enjoy ANY and ALL feedback you may have... the sooner, the better! :)

Thank you
