The book recommends consulting with a doctor " If you have pain below the knee accompanied with numbness, weakness or “pins and needles” in the foot or toes. " Hi Oleg , Randolf has pretty well covered it all . The statement is there as a "Best to be very Careful" warning with these symptoms . My u...
