The other day I woke up with an odd feeling in my feet. It was similar to the feeling of it being asleep, although not fully. Just a mild tingling sensation that didn't seem to go away (was stronger in my right foot). My feet also seemed to feel cold no matter how much I covered them up. Today I had a similar feeling although it seemed to be more focused on the toes. They just felt real cold all day with a mild tingling. They also seem to be a bit itchy, although that may be in part to layering multiple pairs of socks.
Now I feel silly going to my doctor and saying "my feet kind of feel like they are asleep all the time" but I think I might have to. I'm 28 years old, overweight, but have a fairly normal blood pressure last time I checked. I do work a desk job, so I am sitting most of the day. However, I've been moving around a lot the past coupld days and can't really seem to shake it.
My biggest fear would be diabetes although I haven't had any other signs (not overly thirsty, no bladder issues, blurry vision, or fatigue). I'm wondering if this is potentially normal and will go away in a few days or if it is something I should have looked at. I've been soaking in warm water once a day and trying to keep my feet as warm as possible.
