Brief Answer: peripheral neuropathy Detailed Answer: HI, thanks for using healthcare magic Abnormal sensations are usually related to abnormal function or structure of the nerves. These abnormal sensations can come in the form of tingling, sharp pain, cold sensations, heat, burning, numbness etc The central nerves are the nerves in the brain and the spinal cord. The peripheral nerves are the nerves carry information from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. Peripheral neuropathy refers to damage to these nerves. It is likely that the needle may have causes some damage to the peripheral nerves in the feet. Damage is usually minor unless a nerve is cut completely but this would only occur in cases of severe trauma. In your case, it is more likely that there is mild nerve damage. This may repair itself . The time it would take varies from a few days to weeks in some persons. It would be best to avoid any further injury to the feet. A good diet (fruits and vegetables contain essential minerals and vitamins) and using supplements with the B vitamins would help. I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
