Stepped on possible glass feel worried

May 31st

I went to the garage without any socks or shoes on to check on laundry. There is a little carpet that I stepped on and as soon as I did I felt a little sting like I had stepped on something sharp. I felt the sharpness hit the one place on my foot, where your big toe is go down from there and there is a bone there we step on this part. Well, it stung on there I quickly picked my foot up and brushed whatever it was. I assumed glass. I was able to walk fine I had no pain and there was no bleeding. I haven't freaked out as much as I would normally do, but I feel a tat bit worried.

I've always heard its bad to step on glass barefoot but I didn't know there was brogken glass on the floor or why. It just happened. But I'm not diabetic and that I know of I have no wounds, scars, or cuts on the part I felt the sting or walked on. I do however have or had cuts between my toes. This is gross but I've always had itchy feet I would sratch hard that I would get cuts I haven't done that in months so I think the cuts have been healing.

But since I worry a lot I now think something is wrong. My left foot and leg feel funny. I have callus on my both feet and have two bad toes on my left foot. My two toes are yellow due to fungus. I know, its gross. But now I feel like something is wrong could it be the glass I stepped on? I checked my foot it looks normal just feels funny. I do have a neurological disability that affects my feet but usually doesnt give me much trouble. I can move my toe and feet fine but you know the feeling you get when your foot falls asleep? Image that but the feeling of the foot coming back to normal I feel a tiny bit like that. I have no idea if I'm like this cause I can't stop worry or if its all just in my head. Should I worry?

Re: Stepped on possible glass feel worried

I stepped on a piece of glass about 2 months ago and didn't realize it until it started coming out. But it is in my heel and since I keep walking on it is hasn't worked it's way all the way out. It is starting to bother me and would go to a doctor but I don't have medical insurance, any suggestions? Thank you. :-}
