Hey all you FFA bloggers! Do you ever have a tingling feeling in your feet and legs after you start an afternoon walk or evening run? Does it ever feel like you are stepping on pins and needles during or after your exercise? Do these pains ever keep you from your exercise routine? If so you might want to consider coming into our office to discuss your symptoms.
There are many reasons that might cause you to have this type of pain. However, most of the time people complain about burning, pins and needle pain; they have some sort of nerve conduction disorder.
You might be asking yourself what in the world is a nerve conduction disorder? Nerves are what allow us to feel different sensations. They also sends signals to our muscles to move. Even though you might have good muscle strength, you might be suffering from a nerve problem. This type of nerve disorder might be from damage, previous trauma, including micro trauma, or other disorders. Basically, there is a disconnect from one nerve ending to another nerve ending creating misfire of the electrical impulses, thus causing you to feel pins and needles in your lower legs and feet. There are many tests and procedures that your local podiatrist can do to help you and your nerve disorder.
If you or someone you know might be interested in discussing more about the pins and needles you get when exercising with me or another one of our knowledgeable podiatrists, come on into the office of Frederick Foot & Ankle. We would be more than happy to schedule an appointment, at either of our locations in Frederick, MD or Urbana, MD. We can set you up the proper evaluation and treatment plan to help you relieve your foot and ankle concerns; don’t hesitate visiting your local podiatrists! Don’t waste your time come on in to avoid any summertime sadness.
