Sorry I can't help with the foot issue, but I get minor pins & needles in my hands - it seems to be worse when I run fast.
Does anyone know if this is somthing I should be worried about - will my fingers drop off?

I also get pins and needles in my feet after about 3 miles which continues and gets quickly more painful until I stop running.
I also have pins and needles in my hands, specifically the third and fourth fingers and worse in the left hand. This has been diagnosed as temporary nerve damage caused by leaning too much on the elbow or having the elbow bent too much, particularly having it bent all the time you are asleep. Leaning on the elbow causes the nerve to get sqashed and having it bent for long periods causes the nerve to be permanently stretched. These things over time causes damage.
The pins and needles in my hands gets worse when I am running, probably because the arms are bent and moving, aggrevating the nerve.
I doubt your fingers will off but you should look at things like how much you are leaning on your elbows and whether you have them bent for long periods like when you are asleep, and try to correct these things. If it is the nerve, it should return to normal.

Thanks, I will keep this in mind.
I often wake in the night with a totaly dead arm which can't be helping either!

I suffer from pins and needles when running after 20 minutes which eventually makes my feet numb. I also have calf pain at the same time. Funny thing is i never had this problem with my old trainers but bought exactly the same make and now had these problems. Am going to rest up for 2 weeks then try running in my old trainers and see what happens. Failing that im gonna take my 2 sets of trainers down to the podiatrist and see what they say. Anyone else suffered the same thing?

exactly the same for me. calves hurting then really bad pins and needles. hasn't happened fro last 5 weeks and now happened 2 nights in a row ?? so bad had to stop.
Anybody any answers , there are about 20 threads on here but no real solutions.
I haven't changed, trainers, Could it be diet. Course I run had changed slighly ?!
Worried as got half marathon in a few weeks for first time.

I got the same thing in my race yesterday, my aim for sub 1h went when I had to stop all the time cos my feet were get numb.
This was the first time I had this although I have used the same trainers etc over the year, and never got this problem. Although I have to say the bottom of my legs were tightening too.
Could it be the cold weather??
Will see what happens next time I run, as I am concerned as I am starting my VLM training soon.

I was diagnosed with vitamin B12 deficiency when I asked my GP about pins and needles. She said it was so common she keeps a supply of the injections in her surgery.
According to wikipedia the consequences of B12 deficiency can be permanent and devastating, so get yourself a blood test.

Again ive had exactly the same thing as described.
the one answer that started to make sense to me was Meep-Meeps answer.
Ive bought bigger size trainers and in hindsight its got worse. but i never thought that its because my feet are in trainers that are TOO BIG and therefore "slapping around" that could be the problem.
I cant afford to buy even MORE trainers to find the solution so ill try to relace my fore foot tighter and see if that works and let you know.
I'll also let you know if I get gangrene!!???

I have previously had a problem with a painful right calf and then pins and needles - using a foam roller before running has helped this!

Have you tried to run on a treadmill barefoot or just wearing socks? it will tell you if your shoes are to blame for Pins and Needles or not.

I get pins and needles and calve tightening. I have been told that naturally, when standing or walking, my heals sit lower than my toes and causes tightening when running. I have to get my partner to tenderise my calve muscles by hitting them with a rolling pin and then doing some stretching exercises. It helps with the calves but I still get pins and needles. I have been told to wear a heal insert to rise it up so I don't sink into my heals when running, I haven't done this yet but will so it might help my pins and needles and tight calves.
