Default When I get out of bed in the morning my feet tingle :(

So I sleep fairly well most of the night (only wake up a few times) and when I step out of bed in the morning my feet tingle. I also have a slight lower back pain as well, and it's only right when I wake up. Once I move around for a bit the pain is gone

Does this mean my bed sucks? I'm only sleeping on a twin bed () but I can't afford anything else and a bigger bed just won't fit in here right now.

If it is my mattress, would a quality mattress pad fix my problems? If so, what's a good pad I should look for?

yikes, you are probably going to die soon. Your blood is not circulating properly. A heart attack is imminent.

yes. you need a mattress that won't have pressure points. your cutting off circulation somewhere. ever since we got our latex mattress here, my wife and i have slept very very well, no tingling.

I saw a post on webmd that read something along the lines of "Hi, I'm 20 and weigh 340 pounds. I've been having chest pains..."

Now that is an imminent heart attack.

BTW have you tried changing sleeping positions? Propping a pillow between your knees?

I used to wake up all the time and have my arms *totally* numb. I could flip them up and hit myself in the head, it was like being hit with a big slab of meat. I would sit there for a minute and hope I'd regain feeling, and I always did.

Haven't had it happen in 6 months or so, thank God.

tried a bunch of different sleeping positions, seems like nothing works.

I use to go rollerblading all the time in the summer, but now that fall/winter has set in I haven't gone at all.

only thing under my feet is my mattress The mattress does seem to dip down in the center though. Seems like my butt is sinking lower then the rest of my body.

Actually that might be something. If my butt is lower then everything else that would mean my feet are elevated the whole night. Wouldn't it be hard for blood to flow to my feet then?

Regain feeling in your head or your arm?

I actually had that happen quite a bit too when I'd fall asleep on my arm. Weirdest feeling ever!

Get a new mattress, all the mattress pads in the world won't fix the problem. Maybe you need to exercise more?

It seems likely that one of two things is going on. Either the circulation isn't very good, so when you sleep at night with your feet in an elevated position (slightly higher than the heart) your feet might not be getting proper circulation. The other option is that your sleeping position is causing strain on your back or causing a pinching of a particular nerve, resuling in numbness or tingling. The easiest way to fix that is to take a big long pillow and put it between your legs when you go to sleep. It's very common for women, but many men do it as well.

I'll give that a try but it seems like I move around a lot when I sleep....the pillow in the legs might not last long.

Yzzim, does your blanket hang off the end of the bed when you sleep? If you do, the weight of the blanket causes unnecessary pressure on your feet/ankles.

Usually I have the blanket tucked under my feet...don't like my feet sticking out from under the blanket.

Seriously? I'm 22 and find it hard to believe I'd have back problems this early in life.

Besides, thought you had to be at least 40 to see a Chiropractor

it may not be strictly a back problem..could be something else....my entire family, 2 brothers, a sister, mom, dad, uncle are chiropractors....people anywhere from infants to old farts go to them....you could just be misaligned which may be causing a circulation problem...if you think about it, your entire body is controlled by the nerves that run through your spine
