It : It could be all your activities have led to one or more ligaments to fatigue or even become sprained. Also, there is a major tendon that inserts into the center of the arch that begins as a muscle in the leg.

When i wear running sneakers or high vamped shoes my feet fall asleep. My shoes are not too tight but my entire foot falls asleep. What causes this.

When i wear running sneakers or high vamped shoes my feet fall asleep. My shoes are not too tight but my entire foot falls asleep. What causes this.

Squeezing Sneakers: When the entire foot falls asleep this typically is a result of lack of blood flow which in turn starves the nerves and tissues of much needed nutrients and oxygen. When blood flow returns, the nerves awake in a flurry of activity and send mixed messages, hence the tingling. Direct nerve compression gives a local numbness to a specific area. Check for vascular or nerve compression at the ankle. ...Read more
