Long Time Runner (17 years) Sleeping Foot
(Volo, Il USA)
I am a 45 year old male and have been a runner for over 17 years now, ran races, treadmill, outdoor, interval, and trail running.
My issue over the last 2 months is that my left foot seems to fall asleep after about 35 minutes.
I have changed shoes, socks, shorts, etc. and it continues. What do you think may be another cause?Answer by Dominique:
Thanks for your question about your sleeping foot.
I would expect the sleeping foot to occur due to poor blood circulation. If it is an apparel issue it would have to be due to too tight materials, e.g. tight socks, or shorts or shoes / shoe laces?
Considering you have switched and changed your shoes, socks, shorts etc, we can probably rule this out.
One of the possible other causes may be low blood pressure.
But as this is likely to have something to do with blood / blood circulation, a visit to a doctor would not be a bad idea.
It is probably nothing, but with these things it is just better to get a specialist's opinion to put your mind to rest.
