The body has a mirrored nerve system. One side has effects on the other some times.
I was stabbed on the left forearm a few years ago and it did some damage to the nerves. I get a deep itch and pain there at times that won't go away. Sometimes that itch is mirrored on my right forearm in the same place.
The feet are a good spot to test this because there are so many nerve endings there. If you scratch or massage the sole of one foot the other will sometimes tingle in response. Use an object and not your hand as this will prevent biofeedback (the same principle that keeps you from being able to tickle yourself) from masking the sensation.
