Feels like a needle poking the bottom of my foot

Has anyone had the sensation in the bottom of your foot feel like a needle poking your heel? It is coming out of nowhere. Comes and goes. Just feels like a stabbing sensation. What could it be? Thanks for any replies!

Exactly where is this happening? In the heel or elsewhere? Your post isn't clear.

Re: Feels like a needle poking the bottom of my foot

You might want to check out plantar fasciitis. It often feels like you are stepping on a nail for the first couple of steps. The pain will diminish as you take a few steps and the soft tissue loosens up.

If this is what it is, you will want good arch supports. A podiatrist might be able to help you.

If it is in the arch of the foot it could be a Morton's neuroma.

Morton's Neuroma would be in the pad of the foot.
