I've been waking up at night, irritated because the heels of my feet are tingling(like ants).  Also, some stretching (lower back) makes me feel dizzy.

Feet Tingling: Symptoms like this frequently come from the back, so I would start with a neurologist or physiatrist to check that area. The treatment can be simply rotating your mattress, reducing the hours sitting during the day, to more complicated. Here is a video that talks about it.

Why when i drink (once a month) next day bad joint pain (hips, jaw, ankle, heel) and tingling all day in some fingers. Age 35, female, good health?

Could be a number of: Things. I would recommend avoiding drinking and see your pcp just to make sure there are no other issues you are just noticing when you feel poorly. If it is just related to drinking, it could be related to dehydration, which could cause some joint pain but not normally tingling in fingers. You may also be noticing some increased inflammation which can be aggravated by alcohol. Worse with wine?Ra? ...Read more

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. The cause is no doubt from the harp string strumming and popping of one or more of the various, rather robust soft tissue elements located in that area of the foot. Start the evaluation by a seeing a specialist of foot/ankle. ...Read more

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 more
