Electric shock like pain in left foot when walking

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    It's been going on for a day or so. It only happens in my left foot and tends to be worse when I'm walking barefoot; it never happens when I am sitting or lying down. Curiously enough, the pain seems to be coming from the same point (the back of the foot) each time. Is it worth booking an appointment with the GP over this? Any possible causes?

    Can you think of anything that might have caused it?

    I've been having some nerve related problems for years (stabbing pains in head when I eat something spicy plus the occasional stinging elsewhere in my body). Once I thought I had diabetes but a blood sugar and urine sample tested negative.

    If it's in the heel it could be plantar fasciitis. There are lots of discussions about it on runners forums.
