cold feet but not to the touch
« on: April 18, 2012, 09:22:41 PM »
it usually starts out with afoot but can also go to my hands, it feels like they are in a bucket of cold water but to the touch they are warm. If I put on warmer socks, covers, or even warm water it still feels like they are in ice water. Does anyone have suggestions on where I can get help with this. It is driving me nuts :o

Hi  :)

You need to mention this to a doc. It sounds like it could be the start of Reynauds. It may well not be though. It could be a kind of neuropathy.

I don't have Reynauds but I used to frequently feel as though my shoes were filled with ice water so I really empathise with you. My feet now burn and I can't make up my mind which sensation was worse.

Take care - Scottie  :)

Wow, Zig, that sounds weird!  Just like a Sjoggie!  :)

I keep my feet on a heating pad all the time. But mine feel cold to the touch.

Have you talked to any medical folks about it?

Maybe Google "Raynaud's Syndrome" and see if you fit the picture.

Talk to your doc about it. I have idiopathic peripheral neuropathy with the sjogren's. I have all kinds of sensations, or lack of them, in my legs and feet. You might need a refurral to a neuro to get it checked out.

Let us know what happens.

 I have had Reynauds for years as part of SJ evidently.  80 degrees out side and I have on 3 pairs of socks and a sweatshirt.  My hands and feet are cery cold all the time.  I, also, have tingling sensations in my toes.  Not much fun.
