Pins & Needles in Feet

Posted by Deanne W on 3/20/02 at 20:11 (077042)

I'm suffering from pins & needles leading to numbess in my right foot after running 20 minutes or roughly 4km. While it is not intense pain it is very uncomfortable & in some cases I have to stop.
I have no problems with my left foot or leg. Slight pain seems to start on my lower right leg (at the back - archilles).

Does it just affect the bottom or top and bottom? One possibility is tarsal tunnel syndrome. I would get it checked out.
