Excedrin and a runners legs. is it dangerous ?

I am a runner. I took some Excedrin today because I had a headache , about five hours before my workout. I use to take Excedrin to improve my running, but when I did, I had a numbness in my calfs and my feet, as I did today during my running workout. After I d stop running, my normal sensation comes back. It almost felt like my legs and feet were swelling, but numbness. Why does this happen to me, and is it dangerous ?

Hello and welcome to HealthcareMagic!!
Excerdin only contains paracetamol, asprin and caffeine. The caffeine content is very minimal to be even considered as a performance booster. Your symptoms are not due to excerdin

Numbness feeling of calf muscles could be due to inadequate blood supply to your calf muscles might have any sort of minimal atherosclerotic changes of the tiny blood vessels suppling to your calv muscles. MRI can expose the thing. Thank you
