Hey guys,

Since Ive started working out I have been experiencing some pretty uncomfortable pain/cramping and numbness in my feet. It was so bad in my yoga class that I just stopped going ( and i love yoga :( but its extremly discouraging. As well, in cardio exercises i seem to get the same cramping/numbness. I have changed my shoes and still get it (while not quite as bad) anyone else experience this? Any suggestions how to relieve it (espiecally so I can do yoga again!)

Have you been eating right? Enough ions? I don't know why your feet would get numb unless your blood isn't circulating correctly or maybe your breathing pattern isn't right? I'm just trying to put some stuff out there. Haha

ya, Ive been clean eating for awhile now- I meal prep and eat 6 small meals a day. Perhaps it has to do with breathing- I never associated that... Im going to google the relation. Thanks!

If your feet hurt a lot, put a tennis ball on the floor and massage your foot with it. Rolling it back and forth , this helps me a lot. Since my feet occasionally hurt after jogging a lot .

It sounds like plantar-facaitis. Go to a podiatrist (foot doctor) and have them check it out. You may just need inserts. Cost could be as low as $15-20 to $60.

I have insurance so perhaps it wouldnt hurt to get it checked out anyways and get some inserts. Thanks!

Hi Tamara,

 

If you are diagnosed with PF, do not buy Powerstep inserts from the doctor... the markup is insane; instead, go to http://www.protherapysupplies.com/PowerStep and buy them. Much cheaper and you get a dicount coupon to use at checkout. Also, if you need to more agressive ones, (Full Control) just call them for pricing. they will let you order them. I have about 8 pair. I switch them out every 6 months - typical life cycle depending on users weight and actual use.... (my running shoes get switched out every 3 months).

Also, Before you let him/her stick you with any Cortisone shots in your heal, go to your regular doctor and have a full hemeglobin panel run. The last thing you want is to find out that you are borderline diabetic--yes, you can be fit/thin and be diabetic-- and get a cortisone shot. That is just bad juju. Your sugars will spike through the roof and you will be going to the hospital from the foot doctor... Been there done that, got the bills to prove it.

In general, just go to your regular doctor first, have blood work done to rule out anything goofy--low potassium, or sugars, then have them check out your foot, if they think you need to go to the foot doctor, they will let you know. You could just need to stretch more.

Sorry for rambling,

 

Chris
