INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Whether it’s pins and needles or a feeling of numbness and tingling when you go from sitting to standing, we’ve all felt it before. Our foot’s asleep.
It’s what’s called paresthesia and usually happens when a person sits in one position for a long time with one foot under one leg while the legs are crossed. This position cuts off the connection between nerves in the brain that travel to the feet. Blood flow is also cut off and oxygen isn’t able to get to the tissues in the lower limb.
Typically, a sleepy foot is harmless and disappears within minutes. To wake it up, doctors recommend changing positions and avoid sitting for long periods. But there are cases when something else might be going on, especially if the sensation persists to the point where it’s difficult to walk.
Below is a list of medical causes of sleepy feet:
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Certain cancers including lung and leukemia
- Medications including antibiotics and chemotherapy drugs
- Pinched nerves or compression or trauma to the nerves

On Capitol Hill, the debate was over the top.
Republicans attacked the Green New Deal, a Democratic road map to remake the American economy, reduce carbon emissions, and prevent the worst effects of climate change.
But after much political theater, a resolution supporting the proposal was resoundingly defeated by the U.S. Senate.
“I thought it presented an opportunity,” said Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander.
Republican Senator Lamar Alexander is no fan of the Green New Deal.
“So radical, so far left,” said the Senator.
But he does believe climate change is a serious problem.
“Most of the scientists, almost all of them say humans are major cause of it. So, the question is what to do about it.”
Alexander is proposing a 10-point plan to address climate change over the next five years.
“Doubling energy research, building advanced reactors, better batteries, greener buildings, electric cars.”
“The investments that Senator Alexander is talking about certainly should be a part of a comprehensive, bipartisan solution,” said Elizabeth Gore with the Environmental Defense Fund.
Gore was disappointed by this week’s debate. But she’s encouraged by Alexander’s proposal.
“We need members of Congress from both sides of the aisle to come to the table to put their best ideas forward.”
Alexander’s plan is much less ambitious than the Green New Deal, but it does contain some similarities.
And he might have better luck getting it through congress — he’s chairman of the subcommittee
that funds energy research.
INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis health center was honored as part of the top one-percent in the industry.
The Raphael Health Center was picked as one of 10 out of 1,200 centers serving particularly vulnerable populations. The honor comes with a $100,000 reward.
Several organizations are involved with choosing these award winners including The National Association of Community Health Centers and Direct Relief.
According to the release, the organizations said Indy’s Raphael Health Center uses a unique population health approach to treating those with diabetes.
The diabetes navigator determines barriers a certain patient might have to get care and education, and then works around those obstacles with in-person meetings, phone calls and even text messages.
You can see what the Raphael Health Center is all about and enjoy a day full of family fun on September 10th. It’s the 11th annual Miracle on 34th Street Community Health Fair. It will kick-off with a one mile walk/run at 9 a.m. followed by the fair from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
WISH-TV is proud to co-sponsor this event. There will be free pizza and hot dogs, free health screenings, free haircuts for kids, and more.
The center is located at 401 East 34th street near Central Avenue in Indianapolis. Nearly 600 people are expected to attend this year’s event.
RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – Kelly Garrett has been waiting for this day for months.
Garrett is not only wearing her dream wedding dress for the first time, she is also getting a glimpse of the new version of herself, thanks to a mommy makeover.
“I am in love with the results. It has been worth every effort and penny that we did for this,” she says with a smile.
Garrett’s journey started in the operating room about seven weeks before her gown fitting. Dr. Gordon Lewis gave Garrett’s body the boost she has wanted since her kids, ages 12 and three, came along.
“It took me a couple years, a lot of exercising to get down back to a weight that I enjoy, but there are things as you get older that just don’t go back into place,” she says.
Adds Dr. Lewis, “Somebody who’s in great shape like Kelly can expect to get phenomenal results.”
He describes the ideal candidate: someone who is already a healthy weight and reasonably fit who just needs some help with so-called problem areas.
A mommy makeover is any combination of a breast augmentation, lift, tummy tuck and liposuction. Dr. Lewis now does about four a month, which is double what he used to do.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were 117,158 tummy tucks done in 2014, an 87 percent increase from 2000.
Breast lifts saw a 75 percent increase during the same time period, with 92,724 of them done nationwide.
Dr. Lewis says just about every patient loves what she sees post-procedure.
“The mommy makeover just really helped me with that and made me feel refreshed and renewed,” explains Garrett.
She says the recovery was not terrible. She had to wear a compression garment for a few weeks but did not have to limit as much activity as she expected.
“It was more of a ‘If it hurts, don’t do it,’ but I have two kids, I have a life, I have things to do. We had baseball practice and things to go to, and I still lived my life and did what I had to do.”
That includes getting back to planning her special day with her fiancé.
“He’s been very pleased with the results too,” she says with a smile. “We went to Victoria’s Secret for the first time this weekend. We were excited.”
As for the cost, Dr. Lewis says breast procedures run about $5,000. Add a tummy tuck and possibly another procedure, and a mommy makeover can come with a price tag of $10,000 to $15,000.
