foot numbness when running

Posted by Bob O on 4/20/03 at 11:16 (116619)

My left foot becomes somewhat numb when I jog/run on a treadmill for more than 20-30 minutes. What could be the cause and how can I correct this condition.

The same thing was happening to my sister ( she is a marathon runner). I don't remember what was causing this but she
eneded up having a pair of orthotics made around 4 years ago and it seemed to do the trick. My sister has not had that problem
since she started wearing the orthotics. If you would like I will get more details about what the problem was with her foot and why it was going numb, just let me know.
