End stage COPD and Shin Pain

Hi All you good folks

Any ideas for help with freezing cold feet and shins. I can usually warm my feet up by using bed socks but my shins are becoming a real problem. I bought legwarmers a couple of years ago which seemed to help for a little while but they are now so bad that the pain is bringing tears to my eyes if they are touched. My poor carer is getting scared to wash or cream them, and in all honesty so am I. Should I put a hot water bottle on them? Or just leave them alone?

Hi, my shins etc can be sore, when my carer showers me too, I have to tell her to scrub softer.

I guess it is trial and error.


Hi, I'm sorry to hear about the pain in your shins. Have you tried a heating pad on them? That's one of my first go to's for whatever ails me. The 1st is prayer & that's what I'm doing for you. Hope your pain eases up. God bless, Terri



I am so sorry to hear about your pain, but I really don' know what to tell you about your legs. Maybe you should ask your Doctor. God Bless you Patsy. I will talk to you soon.
