My son is now 17 years old. He is a football soccer apprentice in a professional football team. He is generally fit and healthy. He used to train with the team for five days a week and plays a match on Saturday. For a few years, he has been experiencing his feet going numb whilst playing the match. In training, throughout the week he does not feel any numbness in his feet. However, when he increases the intensity in game he experiences a numb feel where he describes his feet as blocks of wood. He seems to have become slower in his game because of this problem. Do you have any idea of what this might be? Thanks.

Thank you for your response. He does complain of very tight calf but does stretch a lot which is strange. We took him to get his feet properly measured today and his width is apparently very wide. We are looking to purchase wider boots for him to see if this helps. The problem normally starts with strong tightness in the Achilles and arch of the foot area. As the game goes on the foot begins to numb and gets completely numb in a while. He did not yet experience any numbness apart from in a game. His blood pressure is 122/69.

Answer: Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com. This is a localized numbness that we are bothered with. Disease starting from this region without any other associated symptoms is quite rare and without them we may not think of a systemic pathology right away. Have you tried nerve tonics?
