Anyone ever had temporary paralysis of the legs after boatin
My girlfriend is getting into paddling and she just bought a Wavesport T2. She bought it because it was the most comfortable boat she could find, and that is really important to her, but we were paddling on the Poudre last weekend and after a long day of paddling her foot fell asleep.
Now I know that everyone's feet fall asleep in their boats but her foot is still asleep and it has been 4 days. Last year, while paddling my creek boat with a wetsuit on she had the same problem, but only this time it was her entire leg and it lasted for two months.
We are trying to figure out what is going on, she is pinching a nerve somewhere in her leg, but we are not sure where or how to alleviate the problem. She really enjoys paddling, but not at the expence of her body/health. We have tried moving the thigh braces and were thinking of raising her butt in the seat so the bottoms of her legs are not pressing as hard into the edge of the seat, but we are not sure what else to do. Any suggestions, inquireis, or other stories of similar problems would be great. Thanks for any help.
