Tarsal Tunnnel Syndr: Yes, you can get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in your feet called Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. Both these problems are caused by pinched nerves. If you're getting both at the same time, then the problem may be something else like elevated glucose from diabetes or poor circulation, or neuropathies. This is not normal. Go see a doctor.

Yes: But in the feet it's tarsal tunnel. There are other causes of numbness though like neuromas, or even radiculopathy from the back. Systemic disease like diabetes or vitamin deficiencies so you want to make sure you have the correct etiology.
