If that's a stroke well I have had many! I have problems with pinched nerves at times and random nerve problems. Stroke seems so unlikely, did your pdoc not suggest neuropathy at all?

Thanks for the reassurance!! She basically told me to watch it etc, my guess is nerve issues, its not that bad, nothing is crippled or useless, I can still walk, move etc .. Should I be doing anything to fix or help it? Or stay off it?

If it is a pinched nerve it may let up on its own overtime or you may need to work it out by increasing movement. Sometimes you may need surgery, although I personally have never needed that, but my MIL may very soon for a pinched nerve in her spine due to arthritis. Also I'm thinking if you had a stroke you'd have more symptoms besides tingling in one foot.
