Do your toes get all tingly on the elliptical? It always happens to me. It's like my toes are asleep. Anything I can do to fix it? Make it stop?<br><br>
I wiggle them around a lot, and go backwards for a little bit, and it goes away temporarily...

Yes, it happens. My podiatrist says it happens to him too. Nothing to really prevent it or stop it. As long as it goes away when you are finished, don't worry about it.

I get tingly toes on long bike rides, but that's probably something entirely different.<br><br>
I would really like to find a way to avoid it. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

Tingly toes on the bike and elliptial are just from repeated pressing down, unlike running where you lift your foot off the ground with each step. As you press down, you are pressing on the ball of your foot which eventually will pres on the nerves and make your toes tingly or numb. The only thing i can think of is trying to press with your heel instead of ball of the foot, or cushier socks/shoes.

I sometimes get tingly toes and FINGERS [first two on the right hand only] on the bike....and often get the tingly fingers when I slog.
