Tunnel not Chunnel.: Although your symptoms could be linked to several conditions, the one that seems to fit well is a condition known as tarsal tunnel syndrome. A nerve located near the inside of the ankle becomes compressed and with this compression come symptoms that are very similar to yours. You cannot treat this yourself and it unusually gets worse. You need to see a specialist to effectively treat your foot.
