I used to get numbness. I found it was I was buying shoes a size too small--not allowing for natural foot swelling during running. Sounds like your issues are more complex than this, & you have looked at that....but keep us posted!!!!!

My left foot will do that on occasion, on my longer runs of 10ish miles. I alter my stride a bit and it seems to go away.

emoticon my right foot would start to fall asleep after a long run....but I think I figured out it was because my shoelaces were too tight. I read online somewhere that even if they feel loose enough, they could still be too tight and if it hits a nerve on top of your foot, after awhile your foot falls asleep.

I've seen three specialists, done 3 MRI's, changed sneakers, changed the size of my sneaker's, etc ...
A vascular surgeon in NYC told me it might be exercise induced compartmental syndrome but I'm wondering if anyone else ever feels numbness in their toes and/or legs when they run?
