I have a thyroid problem and I get the tingling towards the end of my cardo workouts, or my walks. I thought it was because my laces were too tight, and my feet got over heated. So, this is something I will check out. Thanks for taking the time to mention it. Sisterkate2

This numbness happened to my friend and I as we used an elliptical and we were weirded out by it.

I also have this problem usually during the last 10 minutes of my 35 minutes workout. I bought new training shoes and tied my laces comfortably so I knew it must be another reason and it is, I have a low thyroid and learned from the article it's the probable cause for this condition. emoticon

So thanks for the article JEAN-1960! I'll check with my doctor in 2 weeks time and see what can be done to improve on this condition. emoticon

I had the same problem when using the eliptical. My trainer suggested better shoes and not tying them to tight. It seeemed to help. Good luck. I also used to get severe itching when running on a treadmill. It drove me nuts. We gotta fight through these things, and keep searching for answers. Don't give up!

Googling around some more, it seems your symptoms, like so many symptoms, could be caused by a number of conditions. Do you have good health insurance? One article recommended seeing a sports medicine specialist. Good luck with this Katy. My husband ran for years and finally had to quit when his feet fell apart (achilles tendon). So I know it's rough when you really enjoy running and aren't able to continue running.

Ah, well you surely pick up your feet when you run Katy. I'm clueless - good luck.

I have some numbness and tingling in my feet near the beginning of a workout too. I mentioned it to my doctor a few weeks ago, in conjunction with some other symptoms. The other stuff was more major, like my toes and parts of my feet going numb randomly and staying numb for a while. This especially happened when my feet got cold, even briefly. He suspects that it's a condition called Raynaud's, which is when your capillaries contract without reason. He told me it's fairly common and not something to get super worried about. If you have consistent symptoms, I'd recommend going to your doctor and see if they can figure out what may be causing it. It can't hurt and can only help.

Best,
Sarah

I googled elliptical causes numbness and tingling in feet and came up with an article titled: Elliptical machines can cause tingling, numbness in the feet. Here is the link to the article:

I have had this same problem. My feet have actually gone numb before. I stopped the eliptical because of this. I am also interested in any insight anyone can give.

Thanks for a great topic!

Hi everyone... I stepped up the time that I run on the elliptical a little bit and in return, I have had tingling in my feet about 5 minutes before I am done 'running' and for about 5 to 8 minutes after. Any suggestions on what this might be from?? I make sure I am relaxed in my feet, I can wiggle my toes while I'm exercising and I just don't know what else to do!

Thanks for any advice you can give me!
