Tendonitis is inflammation of the area where muscle gets attached and the repeated and over use of the join will cause it. Need to treat it first.
The tingling in feet is seem in person with restless legs.

Since you are having ectopic beat here are few thing to try at home.
1)Sleep better by sticking to a regular sleep schedule.
2)Exercise in moderation.
3) Cut back on caffeine.
4) Avoid alcohol and cigarettes.
5) Consider dietary supplements. Check with a doctor or nutritionist to find out if you’re low on iron, vitamin B, folic acid, or magnesium. Deficiencies can bring on RLS.
6) Lose weight.
7) Try practicing relaxation techniques such as yoga and meditation.
