Severe pins and needles in foot

Patient : I get severe pins and needles in my right foot after a few minutes of standing and seconds of walking. I got looser shoes, and insoles, but it's not helping. After an hour, the pain becomes unbearable and it feels like a needle is in my foot. After 3 hours, I can't feel my foot at all save for shooting pain up my leg at every foot fall. It has always been like this, but it's recently gotten worse and it's ruining my life.
Symptoms:  Pain, pins and needles, numbness, foot pain, severe pain
