Pieces of glass in foot

Patient

Q: Hello doctor, I stepped on small pieces of glass few years ago and i didn't care about it much, there was some bleeding i washed then and i ignored the pain that lasted about ten days. Pain occurred when i walked or push my foot on something... So i all forgot about it but sometimes i have some filling in my foot, like some pain mixed with inner tingle at one spot on my foot. I'm pretty much sure that peace of glass or more of them stayed in my foot because as i said i did not take any care of it, so my question is, can this like mild pain/tingle can be associated with glass, how likely is that maybe glass came out of the foot on it's own, and can that glass have other bad consequences to my body, can it disrupt endocrine system, blood or something else...

Best regards

Symptoms:  mild pain/tingle on one spot occasionally
