Still Having Problems

  1. A few weeks ago I ran in boots for a 3.3 miler and around 2.75 miles I could feel my left foot gradually getting number and number until I couldn't feel it any longer - and I can only assume I was losing circulation to it. I thought it could be 'my boots are too tight' blah blah blah, but I tried running the sae route in trainers three days later and I got it again in them. I went to the doctor's but I honestly didn't find out anything I couldn't have worked out for myself. I stay off running for a couple days to see if it was just a fluke.

    The week after it happened I put some sorbothane insoles in my boots and we had our OTC FTX that weekend. I had absolutely no problem with it whatsoever, but we were not doing long distance running, just patrolling and section attacks. SO at this point I thought it had gone away. However, this past Saturday I ran the same route with about 11kgs and in trainers and it came back, only earlier. And then gain today I ran in boots and the same weight, again the same route, and it came back again.

    Does anyone have aclue what could be going on?

    -Cheers for any help, Gremlin
     
  2. sounds a bit like carpal tunnel syndrome, thinning of the veins, commonly found in pregnant women!
     
  3. Like we said before, could well be compartment see a specialist not just a GP.
