A female asked:

I worked out for the first time this past week (3 times), today my foot feels tingling and a bit numb, and my back aches. Is it from the workout?

Probably overuse: Anytime you stress the body after periods of inactivity, you can overuse certain structures, ie: muscles, tendons, ligaments. This can lead to irritation and inflammation. Whenever starting a new physical activity, gradually increase how much you do each session. Light stretching before and after is helpful. Right now, rest, stretching, poss. antiinflammatories and possibly ice may help. Dr L
