Re; Pins and needles in the feet on and off the bike....

This last 6 months, I have noticed that I am getting really bad pins and needles in my feet. I feel it only started this year. It has however coincided with my worst year of form on a bike for fatigue and sore legs which I attribute to both standing up for a living and bike riding. But, I have just had 10 days off the bike with time away in Gran Canaria and I noticed over there to the point I have been worrying and am now awaiting an appointment with my Doctor.

But, assuming it is bike related, does anyone have any pointers on what could be causing it ?

I have in my mind three things. Saddle, shoes and compression socks. I ride a romin 143, s-works shoes and use compression wear to recover. Would trying a new saddle be your first port of call once I have seen the doctor.

Just wondered if anyone had faced this phenomena ...?

It could be related to tightness in the muscles which in hand restricts blood flow in certain positions. I notice over big blocks of training I can get this pins and needles (plus knee/ankle pain) if I dont stretch rugularily.

Do all the leg stretches you can think of plus lower back stretches and your numbness will probably go away. Good luck!
