Numbness feet

Recommended Posts

Guest Danmar

Everytime that I run my feet get really numb, and hurts a lot while running. I'm afraid that I will fall ir hurt my ankle. I have been stock in week 11 day 2 for 2 weeks because I'm not able to continue the run, so i have to walk and not able to finish the run planned for the day. I have good running shoes and there not too tie.

I hope somebody can give me some tips to avoid the numbness in my feet

Thanks in advance

 So does anything else feel numb on your body?  Arms, legs?  I am not a DR so you should seriously see someone that can help.   I have a bulging disc in my back and mine hands go numb when I sleep.  So it might be a disc or a pinched nerve.   

 

Have you had this happen before?    Like I said, I am not  a DR., so get this checked out, it does not sound normal to me.  Keep me posted as I am curious now.

Hi Kellyb. This did not happen to me before and only happens while running. I'm considering going to see a doctor. I have a 10K race plan in November and I don't this become worse. I'm getting worry about it.

Juli, yes it hurts

I had the same thing with my old running shoes. A client of mine is a triathlete and she said it could be the "toe box" is too tight. I got new running shoes with a wider toe box and haven't had any problems since. Hope you figure it out!

Numbness can be a sign of neuropathy (nerve damage). It can also be a sign of plantar fasciitis. Most people with plantar fasciitis will feel a stabbing like pain at the bottom of their heel and sometimes all along the sole. Numbness can follow this kind of pain. Anything that is inflamed causes the circulating blood flow to become constricted...and therefore, will become numb. I would recommend seeing your doctor and also putting a cold compress on your foot, especially after you have been active on it. As you are experiencing numbness and may not feel the cold as well as others might, make sure you wear a sock between anything cold you are putting on your foot and only do 20 minute intervals.

I had the same problem, first the numbness then pain. I went to see podiatrist and found out I had Morton's nerouma (pinched nerve) in both feet! You should get your feet measurements length and especially width! I have size 7 double E and most shoes are made in a B width and constantly squeezing my feet in shoes that weren't wide enough caused the problem. Hope this helps some!

I actually had Morton's Nerouma as well. I work as a treatment advisor for soft tissue injuries and hear of plantar fasciitis and metatarsalgia often, but not commonly Morton's nerouma. The difference lies in where your pain it. If the pain is in your heel and arch, it is typically Plantar Fasciits. If it is on the ball of your foot; Metatarsalgia. But if it is further down the pad, between your 3rd and 4th toes (metatarsals), then it is usually Morton's Nerouma. I only had pain underneath and between my 3rd and 4th toe, no where else. I couldn't put weigh down on that side of my foot and was limping quite a bit. I treated with cold for about 4 days, resting my foot on a cold pack about 3-4 times a day then started using the BFST Wrap (blood flow stimulation therapy). I talk to people everyday about this treatment and I'm glad I got to experience the results first hand. Within 2 months I was back to normal, no longer limping. This helps any soft tissue injury as it simply promotes more blood flow to the area. Increased blood flow brings more nutrients and more oxygen, accelerating the healing process. I also used tape which I think made a HUGE difference. Foot problems seem to be the the second most common ailment I hear of, next to meniscus tears. I put in the link for exactly what I did...hope this helps someone else out there :)
