Running foot falls asleep

Common Questions and Answers about Running foot falls asleep


Avatar n tn Some researchers suggest that as a subject's heartbeat and breathing slow down, hypnic jerks occur as a natural part of muscular transition.[4] Another theory states that as a subject falls asleep, their muscles begin to relax and cease working, causing the brain to believe that the body must be falling through air. It is thought that this causes people to thrash their limbs in an attempt to catch something or turn oneself upright[4].
Avatar f tn I had a laminectomy/ disectomy on 9-11 but I'm only being given a 50-50 chance of getting my leg back because so much time had gone by. I have complete drop foot and cannot walk without an AFO. I'm being told that I'll probably have to wear an AFO for the rest of my life. Being an athlete all my life, I'm not too fond of that idea. Has anyone here recovered or know of anything medically that might help drop foot?
Avatar n tn Right before the memorial day holiday I got up from the desk in our home office and noticed my left foot was really hurting me. I was limping around as I got the kids to bed and thought perhaps when I was sitting at the desk that maybe I overstretched the foot and it needed to just calm down. By 4AM the next morning I made the decision to go to the ER as it was hurting that bad. Because I had not recalled falling or tripping, no xray was done and I was told I had plantar fascitis (sp?).
Avatar f tn 00, she always wakes again at 9:00, 11:00 and 3:00, often randomly at other times as well but these are the most common.. She is usually up for the day by 5:30. We have tried adjusting her bed time to later in order to have a later morning wake, to no effect. No matter what time we try, she’s up at 5:30. If we try to go later than 7:00, she becomes unmanageable, getting hyper and over-stimulated. She then is extremely hard to put to bed.
219241 tn?1413541365 ), let my eyes glaze over at the water falls of Proxy and got drenched in the process, lay in my darling man's arms as we fell asleep in a tent with big bears running around outside (mind you I slept through the whole adventure and he wasn't being romantic just **** scared, hence the clinging to me for comfort....ah, my big brave hero!) And so...I sit here now with 24 and a half hours to go till I board that tin can with wings...and I cry....cry tears of joy at having been so lucky to be here.
237053 tn?1258832026 Following that all the other symptoms started including all over twitching, numb/weird feeling in toes, shooting pains in arms (like hitting funny bone) hand pain, foot pain (mostly on bottoms), and occasional weird sensations like water running down legs, cold patches on face, ear pain, eye pain, ocassional mild weakness, neck pain, and a rash on belly that I'd NEVER had before, and my arms kept falling asleep at night turning numb and tingly (carpal tunnel like).
554628 tn?1362781519 she will sometimes fall asleep in her bouncer seat, and her carseat she falls asleep in it everytime she's in it lol but she acts like she needs to be held at all times even when she is sleeping, what do i do? i try to lay her by herself at times and she cries if she is asleep she may sleep for a few mins then wakes up screaming... ne help on this???
1207048 tn?1282177904 It is tingly, almost like the feeling when your hand (or whatever) falls asleep, the tingle when you start to get feeling back but it's not really back yet. I'm a bit more clumsy with that arm lately too. And, lastly, the little toe on my left foot is numb. Odd. Up until now most my symptoms have been on either both sides at the same time, or some on my right some on my left. This is the first time everything is on one side.
Avatar f tn My left hip is now also hurting, and my foot falls asleep frequently. Other very strange things have happened in this last year with my health as well, and it's just getting annoying and worrisome. The pain is deep and aching with sharp flareups. It waxes and wanes, but is always present to some degree. It is usually only my thumb or the 4th and 5th fingers that go tingly or numb, and it is usually only the outside of my L leg and foot that start to tingle. I've been checked for RA.
Avatar f tn scared and confused After my illness I have extreme fever like sensation, from my brain to my feet as if it's running down my spine and nervous system, that feels like your foot falls asleep and it's intense. The Valtrex 1,000 mg or 500 mg doesn't calm this down. It's debilitating. To give a background: I have herpies 2 since 20 years ago and extremely humiliated by this devastating blow even today I have not come to terms with this.
Avatar f tn Episode of darkness in parking lot, had no idea how I got to that point, couldn't feel my feet and couldn't see the ground - Two unexplained falls, several months apart. Walking one moment and on the ground the next. - Another spa/hot tub fall – when will I learn not to get in to a hot tub 2004 – 2006 - Dec 2004: Got out of car – unable to walk or move legs, no feeling, no pain either – over a week before full feeling restored. Had to use crutches, couldn’t leave apartment.
Avatar m tn No grip strength loss have deltoid apothy, possible after not using my arm in fear of dislocation after being worngly diagnosed with a bankart lesion 4 months ago. The arm falls asleep often and can not be moved. I through it off the bed with my right arm and feel the blood flowing into it before it can be moved again. It is very frustrating when it burns and the thoughts keep running through my head. It least i can fish again. NEXT...

Avatar n tn Currently I am having either constipation or diarrhea constantly. Stools are always somewhat foul smelling (almost ammonia like) Arm falls asleep during the night. When I wake up, my arm is sometimes completely asleep. Sensation returns completely within a couple of minutes. I have noticed that I sleep on my arm or hand quite a lot, which might be causing it. Joints seem to be clicking all the time in all parts of the body.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Hold for a count of 10. Relax your right foot. Focus on the tension flowing away and the way your foot feels as it becomes limp and loose. Stay in this relaxed state for a moment, breathing deeply and slowly. When you’re ready, shift your attention to your left foot. Follow the same sequence of muscle tension and release. Move slowly up through your body, contracting and relaxing the muscle groups as you go.
147172 tn?1226761778 I am certainly no expert and this is only my OPINION but I want to quote from the book (backed by Dr. Sears) called "The No-Cry Sleep Solution": "He awakes in a mindless terror of the silence, the motionless. He screams. He is afire from head to foot, with want, with desire, with intolerable impatience. He gasps for breath and screams until his head if filled and throbbing with the sound. He screams until his chest aches, his throat is sore.
Avatar f tn I've posted this before but I will post it again. You mention "The No-Cry Sleep Solution". I'm wondering if you've read this passage...... "He awakes in a mindless terror of the silence, the motionless. He screams. He is afire from head to foot, with want, with desire, with intolerable impatience. He gasps for breath and screams until his head if filled and throbbing with the sound. He screams until his chest aches, his throat is sore.
384896 tn?1335297931 Like that tinglie torchering tingle when your foot falls asleep. I HATE IT! I heard that sleeping on your right side when you're preg, can cut of circulation from a major vein that runs from your legs back up to your body, and that laying on your left side is best. And I do admitt, my left side is more comfortable, but after about an hour, I gatta wake up and roll over cuz my hip is starting to hurt.
662972 tn?1270169901 Just saying, I guess it works for some, not me, or my mother (fibromialga-heavy nods falls asleep standing-I know over medicated) or any over the others I've ever met, JUST KEEP THE END IN SIGHT, if you have to live on narcotic meds, understand a bit of pain is supposed to be there. Best wishes Hollie.
7659759 tn?1394406543 They usually after I have been up for a few hours or after being at work and tends to be slightly sharper on the right side. Tingling sensation in my head that kind of feels like when your foot falls asleep or the chills. Nausea that is mild but, udually throughout the day. Leg weakness in both legs that is mild. *****Right pupil dialation; The right pupil dialates quite a bit when in indoor light.
1209036 tn?1299182257 Mostly he becomes so over tired that he will cry and cry until he falls asleep from us holding him and walking with him or rocking him. Any tips for him to get longer and more deep sleeps? night when he does wake up to eat he will only eat like 1 or 2 ounces before he falls back that ok or should I wake him up until he eats more? Oh and when is it ok to stop burping after a feed? A certain age or when he burps himself?
572651 tn?1333939396 Great thread Lu. Numbness/tingling in extremity = Feels like when your foot/leg falls asleep after sitting on it and it won't "wake" up. MS Hug = Feels like a belt is being tightened around upper back and chest. That's all I can think of at the moment since everyone else's descriptions captured what I would have said.
1559533 tn?1308952161 I dunno Lulu but my right leg (the side of my body that MS has attacked) falls asleep all the time when I am sitting. I know there is no circulation problem because too many tests have been run. If you remember it began with my foot then that same leg. I have been cleared by vascular surgeons. It is possible that it is caused by the way I sit....but it never happens in my left leg.
Avatar f tn ) When I went back to this dr. for another foot surgery, Fusion of the same foot, ) he didn't question my pain tolerance and gave me the diluadid right away knowing the Methadone did nothing except for my back pain, no other body pain. Also he gave me the right amount of pain med to block my foot in surgery. So many dr.s in emergency rooms, etc. question the amount of pain meds a person takes thinking they only want a high or are lying about the amount they take.
1742220 tn?1331360327 I did ok with him tho he seems super out of it and falls asleep a lot, in L's class as well. I hardly have any contact with Chula. I have tried so hard with her. it is very disappointing, sad, depressing. after work today I tried to relegate it to just work. its just work! most ppl hate their jobs. why can I just handle it like everyone else? go, it socks but that's work now go home and make the best of it. no I cant. I try but I have not succeeded at it. things affect me.
Avatar n tn I also am a housekeeper and used my hands (especially right hand) all day at work. Sometimes when it falls asleep I cannot bend my fingers to a fist! AND it's not like when your foot falls asleep and gets all tingley and's like my hand it's just dead!!! My doc says it's not carpel tunnel and he suggested hand braces...but..I did not go get them as I figured they would not help much considering mine will fall asleep just lying by my side! I am in good health btw!
Avatar f tn Hi, I am a 30 yr old mom of 3. I am also an experienced ER nurse. Recently I experienced a very odd set of neurological symptoms that put me in the hospital for 4 days. 7 weeks ago I returned from a very stressful visit with family back East during which I had a huge argument with a member of my extended family and left rather abruptly... stress! Then a week or so after we got home (6 weeks ago) I fully weaned and stopped nursing my 18 month old child.
Avatar f tn However, only my left leg/foot were affected. Right leg/foot are fine. - Significant decline in “sensitivity” in my feet. Both feet, not just the left that was affected by the L5/S1 disk. Episode of darkness in parking lot. It was dark and had been raining, when I noticed that I couldn't feel my feet or see the pavement and had no idea how I was standing up or how to walk. No ability to use my eyes to sense the ground due to the darkness. Very frightened.
Avatar f tn Hello to all! My name is Jodi; I'm a 43 year old empty-nester who, until all this started, was pretty dang healthy. Still am, I guess... I definitely consider myself blessed when I read what some of you have gone through on this quest. My heart goes out to you all. First problem was a few years ago when I woke up feeling like someone had punched me in the eye... like it was completely bruised and I didn't want to move it. No redness, no loss of vision, etc.
