I have a question.... I started having a problem with my left foot about a month ago... It started with a tearing feeling in my heal when I would stretch my leg out. I went to a foot doctor who thought it was Plantar fascitis and had me change my insoles to help my arch support... well the next day I started having pins and needle feeling in my foot from my heal to my toes and sometimes goes on top of my foot and also sometimes travels to my other foot which happen when I am sitting (not when I am walking). I called my doctor to tell him of this new thing and told him it feels like my carpal tunnel in my wrist feels like when it acts up. He said it sounds like I might have Tarsal tunnel and gave me some antinflamitory pills to take twice a day (which I took one and had a reaction to it) so he then gave me an aircast to wear to try and get the inflamation to go down... its been about 4 weeks now and the pins and needles are still present. I just went back again and I need to wear the aircast w/ the insoles for another 2 weeks and Ice my foot as much as possible... There has not been a day which I have not had the pins and needles... my question is could this be something else?? Does it normally take this long to see an improvement?? He did do that taping on my ankle which I did not feel anything different... if i do rub on the back of my I can feel a popping kind of feeling in my heal which then I can feel faning out to the bottom of my foot. its not as much "Pain" and the pins and needles". Do you have any suggestions??
