Default How much should I worry?

I'm going to apologize now for the rambling. I'm 50 years old. For the last two weeks, I've been having what I would describe as very intermittent feelings of electrical/shooting pains in my feet. I am 6'0" about 255 lbs. My A1c in March was 5.4. Last weekend, I went to the ER due to high blood pressure. My glucose was 101.

This is not the first time I've had this feeling. In 2018, I was having pins/needles feelings intermittently in my feet. This was after I felt out of the shower on to my butt. The feeling went away on its own.

In 2016, I was having pins/needles feeling, too. Blood test discovered I was lower on Vitamin D. A Vitamin D prescription and supplement fixed that issue.

The question I have right now is: how worried should I be? This reoccurrence has me so stressed out and filled with anxiety at times that it's hard for me to function (e.g. eating). It's affecting my eating, sleeping, etc.

Saw podiatrist on Thursday. She said it's probably because my shoes don't fit right (too tight) and to take a B vitamin supplement. My PCP (same hospital system) didn't agree with her at all. In fact, when I mentioned the intermittent pains in my feet he didn't even seem concerned which I found strange. So far, I've no pins/needles, numbness, or issue with mobility.

I'd appreciate ANY feedback/thoughts on this. Thank you.
