@jenniferhunter thanks for the reply! Fortunately, the ankle/foot is getting much better! It's taken months but the tingly is minimal and the actual pain seems to be gone. I bought metal tools like the kind they use in gua sha. Obviously I am not trained in it but have had enough ASTYM done on various limps that I have a somewhat good idea how to do scraping. I used the tools on both legs twice a week for several weeks and then scaled down to once a week. Did a little strengthen via physical therapy. I think the combination of the two helped greatly. 🙂

@amywood20 Great! I'm glad you are better. Some things take a long time to heal and will heal if we can stop aggravating the problem area. My podiatrist had described the tingling I got in the ball of my foot as an area that is held like a basket. He made a cutout support for that in the custom orthotics. With orthotics, I don't get the tingles, but I will if I walk barefoot.
