What causes mild shock feeling in the heel?

The heel on my left foot keeps having a sensation like bubbles being forced through a vein. Kind of like a very mild shock feeling. It does not hurt but drives me crazy. It repeats over & over again every few seconds. My husband rubbed my calve, pushing the blood towards my foot and this seemed to help until he stopped. What could this be? Any insight would be much appreciated. Wasn t sure if I should make an appt. with my doctor.

hi,

thank you for providing the brief history of you.

A thorough clinical examination is advised.

As you have this shock feeling in the foot a thorough clinical examination is advised followed by an X-ray or an MRI which can help much more.

As this pain can be due to either of one and ruling out thoroughly can help treat better.

•calcaneal spur
nerve impingement
plantar fasciitis
varicose vein

To rule out the possible pathology and using the diagnostic test will help differentiating and making a provisional diagnosis.

Treatment will be implemented accordingly
