What Is The Prognosis For The Feeling Of Electric Shock In Left Foot?

I have sudden onset of feeling of electric current in left foot-every 5-10 seconds, no pain, weakness no numbness--2days now,unrelieved by positional change or exercise. Post tendon rupture & calcaneous bone fracture (2007) and recent painful impact injury to left side of left knee (3months ago) with some residual impingement and soreness). Does this require urgent attention? What possible diagnoses? What treatment? I am 82 years old, on no meds except for longstanding asthma and mild copd. Thanx

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, old history of injuries may not be cause of present symptoms but this could be nonspecific, try to maintain good posture or gait because this could be due to bad posture and gait some time this could be due to some functional condition, just no need to worry about this would be fine soon, take care.
I find this answer helpful
