It is possible to have pain, numbness, and/or tingling on the bottom of the foot when the nerves from the lower part of the spine that supply sensation to the feet are injured. This most commonly occurs from a disc herniation, but can also occur when bone of the building blocks of the spine (vertebrae) is directly pinching on these nerves.
