    Jogging/walking and foot numbness and tingling
    An_252035 posted:
    I have gained weight over the last year and am trying to get back into an exercise program. Running has always been my stress relief. I have started jogging and walking about 2 1/2 miles a day. Everything starts out fine; but, the further I go the more my feet start tingling and start to go numb--they don't hurt. By the time I ended today, I could barely feel my left foot except for the tingling. I had to slow down because I almost tripped because I couldn't feel my foot. I have tried retying my shoes (looser), stretching before and after, starting out slower, even using different shoes and styles. but nothing seems to help. My feet are fine during the day except when exercising. Any explanations?
