Tingling=Nerve: The first thing to take note of is that you have this in both feet. This does suggest that it could be coming from nerve impingement in the back. Otherwise there is still the possibility of nerve entrapment in both feet, such as tarsal tunnel another thing to consider is the shoe gear that you wear throughout the day.

Perhaps a nerve: Gets compressed when you sit in that position? Try sitting in the tub without the water on then you would know if it was positional. If its transient secondary to the hot water, that's simply the water is a litle too hot and I would not worry about it other than being careful not to burn yourself. ...Read more

Heavy shelf fell on top of my foot yesterday. Instantly felt pain and tingling. It was hard to walk at first There is no brusing and minimal swelling?

Varies: If you are asking whether or not you should be seen, it is hard to answer without more info. If you can bear weight on the foot and the pain is minimal, it is likely reasonably safe to give it a few days to see how it does. If any question, I would not hesitate to be seen to make sure you did not sustain a fracture. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. In the interim you may take multivitamin tablets, available over the counter, in case your symptoms are due to nutritional deficiency.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Get Tingling and numbness in the 3 middle toes both feet. Stopped wearing shoes with heels 3 months. Starting to run/walk. Have good shoes. No help.

Was walking fast in the rain, stepped down and felt pop in calf muscle. It hurt a lot last night, I could walk but iced and took IB. Foot Tingling.

Was walking fast in the rain, stepped down and felt pop in calf muscle. It hurt a lot last night, I could walk but iced and took IB. Foot Tingling.

Partial tear: Usually this history means a partial tear of one the calf muscles. The medial head of the gastrocnemius is the most common. Tingling may just be from some swelling around the nerve. I expect that to resolve within a few days. Rest, ice a calf sleeve and wearing supportive shoes with heels should all help you. Don't stretch it. Ibuprofen optional. Healing usually in 2-6 weeks. ...Read more

If your numbness issues has been going on for a while then it is less likely GBS. However only a neurologist will be able to tell for sure. ...Read more
