    @stellaluna have you ever had lower back issues or sciatic pain? I have chronic sciatica and the symptoms are similar to what you are describing. Sitting at a computer for long hours can bring this on. Does this ease with rest?

    @Jaycey yes resting does seem to help a little bit. And yes my day job is an office job . I sit but do have a sit to stand contraption that I use so I’m not seated all day. I’ve never had any major low back issues that I can recall.

    Update— dr called. Says it’s the peroneal nerve. He asked if I’m a side sleeper- I said yes; mostly cuz if I sleep on my back I snore and it annoys my hubby lol. It’s def better but foot still a bit numb. I took it easy today for sure and I think it’s helped !
