Occasional tingling in right foot, arthritis in knee. Family history of circulatory issues. Treatment?

Hi I feel an occasional tingle in my right foot. I m a healthy, active 58 yr woman, vegetarian since college and excellent BP and low cholesterol and take no meds. I have a small issue with arthritis in my right knee, but am able to manage that w/o meds. Just daily multivitamin and baby aspirin . But both parents have had circulatory issues and heart disease as well as diabetes, so I m careful with my diet. The tingle in my foot is new and wonder if it could be related to my arthritis.

Thanks for writing to us.
The occasional tingle in the foot is likely to be due to a mild nerve root compression at the level of the spinal cord due to age related degenerative changes of the spine.
An MRI of the spine will help[ in confirmation of diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
