    Not related to tennis at all, but just wondering if anyone has experienced this. When I run long distance (several miles) my right leg starts to tingle, the same feeling as when your foot falls asleep. Then it starts to spread up my right leg if I keep running.

    Super bad? No biggie?

    I'd say, likely no biggie (if normal pulse, temperature, color, etc...), but certainly seek consultation with a physician, because it's not normal.

    I'd get it amputated just to be safe

    No this is mega wrong! I had a runny nose and amputated said nose, yet still to this day, suffer from a persistent leak:oops:

    When you cut off your nose, do you feel that it spited your face?

    I'm sure that this happened before the nose incident too.

    What you describe may be a nerve issue in your mid-lower back. You should definitely get this checked out.
