Re: Feet fall asleep

If the top of your feet fall asleep, then it is possible the position they are in is impinging ont he superficial peroneal nerve on the top of the foot. If the bottom of the foot is getting numb then it involves the posterior tibial nerve. Most likely the tendons surrounding the nerves are swelling causing the problem.

As far as fixing it, I can't really say, other than to try a different activity.
