I have this issue, too, and went through all kinds of PT for it when I first started running. After a while - well into my training - it stopped happening. My current PT (who I go to for other things) thinks it's a sign of imbalances in my strength in my legs causing me to hit off-center or harder on one spot on the foot that triggers the nerve. Which would explain why it goes away the stronger I get.
Anyway, all that to say there could be any number of causes. Play around with your shoes, how you lace them, etc. And if it gets too annoying check in with the doctor.

I have no "goal weight". MY goal is to be as healthy, strong and active as I can be. This isn't about my relationship with the scale but my relationship with the world.
