You need to discuss this with your doctor. There is no way for any of us to tell you what this is over an internet message board.

Hi willfer and welcome!

Anon is right, it's impossible to diagnose a health issue online but I can give you additional information to take to your doctor.

One of the symptoms of diabetic peripheral neuropathy may include tingling in the feet. Click the link here to read about this common complication of diabetes, often related to blood sugar being too high for a long period of time: Diabetic Neuropathy

Only a medical professional can give you proper diagnosis and treatment so please do make an appointment ASAP.

I have my diabetes pretty well under control. My last A1C was 6.3.I think I found the reason for the pain in my foot was not tingling it's more like pain. I don't remember twisting my ankle. It comes and goes like it may be arthritis. I will see my doctor in two days and let him have a look at my foot.
