Deep heel itch - nerve damage??

For at least 2 yrs. or more, I've had a deep itch in my left heel (above where I step). It is driving me crazy! I can't scratch it or relieve it and I feel driven to dig into the itchy area and see if there is something in there. I'm feeling desperate, though have not attempted to self-operate yet!. I wake at night with this intense itch. I have several herniated discs and have had a numb sensation in my lower left leg for 2 yrs. after a particularly bad episode of back pain which affected my left leg. Can the two be connected somehow? I've been rubbing on heel crack relief cream but it doesn't do a thing really as the itch is seemingly so deep in the heel.

Could this be from my back problem?

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
