For the last 2 days I have had a sort of blood whooshing feeling in my left foot, around the ball area of the sole. It is hard to describe, but it is 24/7 and feels like "whoosh.......2 seconds later.......whoosh....2 seconds later....whoosh and so on". It is not painful but just annoying. It happens whether I am lying down or standing up or sitting. It started, or I first noticed it, when I woke up and felt like I had been bitten or whacked my toe in my sleep. I could see a very small red spot on my toe, so just assumed it was a bite. This could be totally coincidental.

I just had a kip for 2 hours and when I woke up a moment ago I had what felt like cramp or a dead leg, while I had this feeling the whooshing sensation had stopped, but 5 minutes later the cramp feeling went and the whooshing came back. Straight away I was worried about a blood clot, but there doesn't seem to be any swelling and I can bend my toes. It feels a bit pathetic to go to the doctors with a sensation, but I might if it keeps up. I just wondered though if anyone else has felt this or has any ideas what it could be ? Could it just be the spot on my toe is being healed and so this feeling happens ?

Another way to describe the feeling would be to spray a water pistol inside your foot every 2 seconds, ha, very difficult to describe.

Thanks all.

Sorry I don't know, I suggest you go to your GP and get it checked out just to be on the safe side.

The whooshing feeling must be your pulse, with the blood rushing through a vein in your foot. Maybe you've accidentally injured it and its swollen?

When you say whoosh, do you mean it throbs?

Anyway, our feet get a lot of wear and there could be several reasons for your symptom. No one here can disgnose you. Go to a GP if the symptom persists.
