Common Questions and Answers about Running foot numbness

foot

It is difficult to say without physical examination what it could be that is causing numbness in your foot. Numbness of the foot generally is a result of conditions that affect the nerves and/or blood vessels that supply the foot. Numbness of the foot is often associated with tingling. This is referred to as paresthesia of the toes.
I have had pain and numbness/tingling in my R foot x 9 weeks. Initial pain occured after running, bruised x 2 weeks. Went to PCP to rule out metatarsal stress fracture- x-rays clear on 2 occassions. I was put in a post-op boot to help keep pressure off and told to rest for 2 weeks. It has since been 9 weeks, and pain has radiated to other parts of foot and front of ankle. Also includes continuous "pins and needles" feeling. Pain oddly seems worse at rest.

i began to experience tingling in the arches of my left foot while running along with hip and knee pain. i bought better running shoes(approx. 2 months ago) and while the tingling has stopped while running, i continued to feel a certain numbness in my left leg, which now feels more like a weakness of muscle which at times expresses itself by a shaking of my leg after minimal exertion. could i have caused nerve damage by running in bad shoes which would cause leg weakness?
Apart from that if I am walking or running I don't anything different. There is no mark or spot on my left foot. Another thing I feel this only on my left foot fingers, my right foot is perfectly fine. can someone please help. I am not able to wear shoes if I am sitting, I have to take it off.
During the last three summer competitions she experiencec occasional foot drop. There is no pain and no numbness, but she cannot control her foot. She has not racewalked since the summer and has not had any more problems. The doctors cannot find anything after two MRI tests on her brain and spine. They also did a nerve reaction test with no results. We don't know how to proceed from there.
Since my son's issues started he always said the left side of his body is worse than his right side. For months now he's been getting pins and needles and numbness in both feet and again his left foot is worse. Recently we went for new shoes and at his fitting we realized that his left foot is over a size smaller than his right. I don't know how we missed this because it's very obvious when he standing in his bare feet. I know most people have one foot smaller than the other.
My right foot started "humming" or, vibrating a few days ago, and starting yesterday, both of my feet and my right hand have been cramping up. My calves have cramped up off & on for a couple of months, but I thought it was just because I haven't been to the gym since mid-April. Does anyone else get this? Could it be the start of mobility issues? Thoughts?
I weigh more than I should, but I'm working on that w/the running. I have been running for a few months now. Last week Thurs. after the game my left heel (the bottom) started going numb. I know that cleats do not give you much support, so I though it was just from playing so hard w/the cleats. But it's been a week now and it's not going away. When I jogged this week Wed. and Thurs. my whole left foot went numb and tingly. Thurs.
A few days ago I had a sensation of the floor vibrating under one foot. Since then I have realized it is my foot. It is felt in bloth feet, one at a time. Never both at the same time. I feel it when I am standing r walking. It is like an intermittent buzzing sensation. It comes in short bursts on after the other then stops. It will happen when walking and I will feel it with every third or fourth step. What could be the cause?
Have numbness in foot following total knee joint replacement surgery. Can something br done about this condition?
I have just begun training for a full marathon and am experiencing foot numbness in my left foot. Usually the numbness begins at about mile 3. I have to stop after every half mile (this is how long it takes for my foot to become completely numb) and walk maybe 10-15 steps to get the feeling back. I tie my laces loose enough, so what could be the problem?
I have dealt with that for years but now I am experiencing numbness. My left foot feels like it is slightly asleep all the time and my right foot only sometimes. Parts of my body mainly my thigh area feel slightly numb. I've been to the doctor and had a blood test done and it was normal and had my foot xrayed but it showed nothing. Any thoughts?
Does anyone know why I get a numbness on my lower leg after running? I get a numbness in my lower leg (exterior) after running for about 10 minutes. The muscle closest that I could find is the extensor digitorum longus. The numbness runs vertically up my leg. I have been inactive for a while and am now getting routine cardio in at the gym. I've noticed that I've had this problem now for about 5 years now. I've changed shoes about 4 times but the same thing happens.
About 18 months ago the tips of my toes were numb. The numbness progressed down my foot to about 1 inch past my toes within the first 2 months. I can feel my toes but when you ***** it with a needle, it just feels like you are touching it with your finger. It has not progressed since then. My Dr. has run several blood test (B12, Thyroid, Diebetes, metabolic workup, etc.) and nothing has shown up. An EMG showed inconclusive muscle irregularities in my toes. No other test were done.
It used to keep me up at night with cramps, cramps have stopped, but now there is numbness. I have to look at my foot to know where it is, It seems like I have lost sensory feedback to a degree in my leg. I can feel difference between sharp and dull, (EMG was OK). But light touches I may not feel. My leg frequently feels like it needs to be stretched, and it feels tight, similar to a blood pessure cuff. I stumble alot and walk with a cane.
I get cramp in feet on occasions and tingling with some numbness. Pain varies in all of us so your foot problem could be related.
I started doing basic arobics last week and my group meets once a week I did a lot of running on Saturday and on Saturday night I started feeling a tingling and numbing on the right side of my right foot not the toes only the foot part it comes and goes.
It is my right foot's big toe, and the numbness starts about the base of the toe nail and goes to the tip of my toe. The numbness is not spreading and my foot looks normal - nothing is discolored, painful or causing any other problem. In fact, I forget that it is numb most of the time, until I bump it taking my shoes off, etc. I have been wearing the same shoes for a long time and doubt it's from my shoes. I have not injured it in any way, and have no other problems with my foot...
I have had right lateral foot pain and right ankle and calf and heel pain since 11/07. Have seen 3 different ;podiatrists and a neurologist and all have different diagnosis.
Also on occasion the tip of my tongue gets a slight feeling of pins and needles. Most of my numbness and tingling is in the left leg and foot. Sometimes in the left arm and hand. I was hoping my GP would order an MRI instead of the x-ray, but I guess that will be done through the neurologist. My symptoms started in the left foot and have worked their way up my whole left side. Everyday is different. It can be quite frustrating.
I have been feeling better and started exercising for the past 3 weeks which includes vigorous running, but over the past 2-3 weeks I now have had some buzzing, numbness, in my left foot and pain in both feet. My toes burn every once in a while. Most of the numbness is while I sit or lay down, and the burning is when I walk. I am experiencing some lower back pain. I am wondering if this is my neuropathy coming back or maybe a pinched nerve or disk problem.
I am a 37 yr old female-history of multiple allergies/eczema. Approx. 6 weeks ago, I developed numbness/tingling in my L arm with pain the length of the arm's underside & weakness/numbness/ tingling in my hand-more so in 4th & 5th fingers. I saw a neurologist & these tests have been done: Brain/Cervical MRI-normal,EMG/NCS L arm/hand-normal,Labs-B12, Homocysteine, methylmalonic acid, TSH, Sed Rate-all normal, C-Spine X-ray to rule out TOS-normal.
I tried the foot-up but not enough support. I too am scared of another surgery after developing foot drop which they can not explain why from the total hip. I keep hoping for new treatments but from what I hear there really isnt much going on even in trials/testing. Best of luck to you and your husband .
Herniated disc at 17, and now another with numbness and mild (at the moment) foot drop. I am very curious what has happened with that over the last couple years for you.
