Foot Pain: Pins and Needles

Hi, I have recently started gentle jogging and find that after I have run about 2 miles my foot cramps and gets pins and needles. I changed my runners to a bigger size but it is not making any difference. Any suggestions?





Answer by Dominique:


Hi there,
Thanks for your question about your foot pain.
You are most likely experiencing pins and needles, tingling and prickling etc. because your nerves are being constrained.

This could be because of your shoes; maybe not the size of the shoes, but maybe your running shoes are not right for your feet? Maybe your shoe laces are simply too tight?

If this is a constant recurring thing no matter what you try, you may wish to have it checked out. This type of foot pain can be related to a large number and a variety of conditions like a stress fracture in your foot or toe or type 2 diabetes.
