Brief Answer:
Doesn't seem to be worrying, just ignore this...

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX Welcome back to 'Ask A Doctor' service...
I've gone through your query in details...

I've checked all these attached images, and it doesn't seem like anything to be worried about...

Yes, just try to forget this incident and move on...There's no need for any HIV testing at all...

If you feel any pain at the bottom of your feet, then perhaps take a Tylenol (Acetaminophen), apply some ice-packs on it and give your feet some rest for a while...

If I were you I'd try to just ignore this incident and move on with my life...No need to worry...

Just relax...

Take Care
Kind Regards

Brief Answer:
No need to worry...

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back,

I've again rechecked all the pictures, the foot looks absolutely clean, in other words, there isn't any obvious puncture mark or bleeding present...

No, had it been any piercing needle you'd have been felt intense sharp/piercing pain, that doesn't seem to be the case here...

Yes, I can understand your concern here, but I wouldn't worry about it either...

Don't worry, just give the feet rest, for now, apply some ice-pack two to three times a day for the time being, take a Tylenol as already discussed above, you should be fine...

Take Care
Kind Regards

Brief Answer:
the more you repeat the same thing the more you confuse yourself...

Detailed Answer:
Instead of repeating the same thing, just try to calm yourself down first...

Now go back at the top and read this entire discussion repeatedly at least twice, that'll help you to understand this better...

You're feeling pins and needles due to stress and injury to your feet, for which I've already suggested the next measures on repeated occasion, firstly follow them...

Pins and needles like feelings don't mean you've stepped onto any needles, please don't worry...

Take a deep breath and divert your mind from this, follow the advice already given earlier, you should be fine...
