There may be a plantar fascial component or it may be coming from a more proximal cause like a radiculopathy from the back. Depending on your foot structure, orthotics may be beneficial.

Bottom of heel pops when go onto tiptoe.Feels like strumming of harp strings, followed by cold tingling sensation in heel & ankle. What can this be?
Cord or Chord ??: The cold, tingling sensation of the heel and ankle is be caused by a temporary disruption of normal nerve impulses in a rather substantial nerve supplying the heel and ankle.

I have had a rhythmic tingling in my right heel for 2 days now. I don't notice it as much when I'm walking around but notice it when resting/sitting?
You've got Rhythm.: I would say the rhythmic pattern is caused by the hearts beating rhythm. The fact that you feel it's rhythm means that the heel is likely inflamed. The inflammation causes congestion and pressure on the nerves which makes the tingle. Elevate your feet, higher than your heart, if you can. You might need some better foot wear to take some shock off your heel. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have tingling in right heel on one single spot and also between third and fourth toe. It comes and goes, one day a week, transient but it never goes?
Hmmmm: That is a tough one, may be nerve irritation any time "tingling" is involved, or could be bone/heel spur that comes and goes as far as the pain/tingling foes? A foot dr.

Tingling in one heel when laying down in a semi-supine position only. could it be from a minor scoliosis on my neck wich pushes at a nerve a little.
Not likely: Not likely related to a compressed nerve in your neck. Minor scoliosis is usually not associated with pain or nerve compression. Are you having any lower back pain? Heel numbness and tingling can often be associated with nerve compression in the lower back. If your symptoms are gone within 6 weeks, seek an evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
