Experiencing numbness on both of my quadriceps after exercising. Workout related injury?

Hi Doctors, I m experiencing numbness on both of my quadriceps after a day in the gym. I m not sure when exactly i got it. During the gym, I did light jogging, couple reps deadlifts, and other weight lifting exercises involving back like lats pull down. I did not go really heavy. on the next morning, i started to feel the numbness. Is this some kind of injury? Thanks

Thanks for your post.

Feeling numbness in muscles is common symptom after having any unusual physical activity after a long time. Your body muscles are not trained earlier to bear little more stress so your body's system struggles to maintain extra blood circulation in active muscle. Numbness will fade away once you continue your same physical activities for next couple of days. Nothing to worry about, however you should check your Vitamin B12 levels if you are vegetarian or experiencing dyspepsia/indigestion.

Take Care!
