post eswt

hello.....I had ESWT in mid Jan and have been taking it easy....about two weeks ago started noticing slight tingling in ankle and foot area...and was a little worried, but after dr zuckerman and dr biehler's assurance that is is just post-ESWT symptoms, didnt worry much anymore.

Now, however the tingling has increased in severity in ankle, foot and up halfway on shin area, these last few days have been awakened at night due to it...it is constant and unremitting...I don't remember this occuring last time I had ESWT.

For fear of being labeled a hypochondriac, I tried not to worry too much...but at this point, I don't feel this is normal...the tingling is present constantly....shooting up and down..Like nothing I have experienced before...I have also started taking nsaid's

Should I go see a doctor? or should I wait some more?

Sounds like nerve compression. This could be from your change in gait after compensating for so long. This should be examined. Dr. B.
