pain&tingling sensation on top left foot!!!!

I feel pain,tingling,and numbness at the same time on top of my left foot. When I try to message it- it feels better but pain and tingling feelings comes back. Sometimes I wake up and my left leg and my left arm is numb and tingling affect. I am 35 yrs. old and only drink occasional red wine, in good health. The only thing I could think that might have caused this is I started playing tennis.  Could someone help me out, I really appreciated. Thank you......

Thanks for writing in.
There are quite a few possibilities here. Firstly these symptoms could be due to peripheral neuropathy which can occur due to diabetes or B12 deficiency. There is also a chance that due to playing tennis you may have got pinched nerve at the ankle.
I would suggest you to do some gentle foot exercises and stop playing tennis for a while. Cold packs, OTC pain killers and B complex supplements will also provide relief.
If symptoms do not improve please get yourself evaluated by a clinician. Take care!
