Over the last 8 months I have been getting a periodic severe tingling in various locations in my feet. It usually but not always occurs in the middle of the night while sleeping. It normally occurs either in my big toe or the underside on the foot in the arch. Rubbing the location provides minor relief. It usually subsides after 30-40 minutes. It always occurs in only one foot. Over the last month I have experienced some numbness in both big toes. I have brought this to the attention of my general practitioner and he told me it was inflamed nerves and there was no available treatment.
