    Cross post-Electric shock sensation in my foot?

    I am a healthy, somewhat active, over weight, 38 yo female. For the last month I have been having episodes where I get sharp, needle like "electric shock" sensations in y left foot. It comes on unexpectedly and last @ 15-20 seconds. It feels like I am being jabbed with needles.

    I just remembered this.. a few years ago I used to get the sensation of being shocked as I walked. I remember thinking it was the vaccum cause I'd often get it while vaccuming. Then it happened while not vaccuming and I knew it was me. I haven't had it in a while and now this new stuff. It has to be connected? I don't understand why only 1 foot though?

    I have always had poor circulation in my feet and like right now they are very cold and tingly because I have been sitting at my desk for a while. However, the pain I have been getitng for a month is not tinlgy, it is sharp and sudden.

    I need to add that I was diagnosed with plantar fiscus a year or so ago, but this electric shock pain has only been [email protected] a month.

    Any ideas?

    Usually sharp electrical pain is a sign of nerve problems. I know how misserable it can be. You need to check with your doc to see what he thinks. It could be a number of things, one of the first things that comes to mind is a mortons neuroma. It is so easy to try to guess what it is, so you really need to see your doc. before you panic.
