Had the numbness bit Paul, only had it with certain prostheses, so imagine its prosthetic related, maybe pressing on a nerve or something, but its very off putting isn't it and a horrible feeling.

Hiya Ann yes very weird feeling the numbness, Ive never had this before they have swapped me foot to a softer heel from me old one soo i thought overall it would be alot better walking through and all but i dont feel it , When i start out to walk its fine and as times goes on then the numbness starts there is no red spots when i remove me iceross so cant be pushing on one spot but when i take me leg of at night now it aches like mad . Im going to phone My Limb centre to make appointment go in.

Hiya i wouldnt say pin & needles but there is a sensation in me socket , but i have lost alot of weight and was casted for that reason being my old iceross was a size 34 and now im in a 26.5 size soo the old leg there was alot of movement going on even with socks , and now im wondering its becoz im that snug now with it being suction socket . and i need time get into it .

Paul, I agree w/oneblueleg...definately in the socket,{too tight} or pressing on a nerve.
