From your description. it sounds as if you have a tear in the fascia. The numbness may be a sensory nerve that is getting trapped up in the resulting inflammation. You should stop the exercise that caused the problem and try to rest the area. Ice and some heel cushion may help. If you are not noting any improvement at all after several days-to weeks, please see a podiatrist.
