Problem - Foot Falls Asleep When Walking?

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

When working out the last few days I've noticed that my foot (left) keeps falling asleep when I'm on the treadmill. I've already checked and it's not a shoe issue (I made sure that the laces and shoes weren't to tight.)

When I looked it up on the web it looks like the possibilities are a compressed nerve in my foot or a lumbar/spine issue. Looks like I need to go to call a chiropractor.

Has anybody else had issues with this?

Regardless, it won't stop me. I'm really enjoying working out and eating well. I may just have to find another route for cardio until it's taken care of.

Onward we go...

    That used to happen to me when I used the elipitical machine. Found out you need to have your stride/gait checked by a shoe store that specializes in athletic shoes. Don't go to a big box store the first time, they don't have the training to tell you what you need. I found out I slightly over pronate and needed shoes with a hard arch support on the inside of the arch so that the foot didn't fall to the inside. Hubby has "duck feet" flat, flat, flat, and needs a different arch support. That's a lot less expensive than a trip to the doctor if it works for you! Hope that helped!

    I've been experiencing the same thing, but I've had reconstructive surgery on my foot, so I have a scar. It's terribly irritating and DD says I should probably see the chiropractor too.

    Definitely talk to a doctor about this---not sure a chiropractor should be the first step. Just be careful when it happens--could easily turn your ankle while it is in that state which could lead to other injuries.
