does enyone get this

my knees have been like tingling and my feet the other day when i took wifes aunt for her tests to the hospital whent all cold when i came back i have been putting cold sore stuff on me toes cos they have been as cold as snow

then at night time about 6pm they start warming up again for no reason.

its like when you whent snowballing when you where a little kid without gloves on and your hands where all cold

feels like the stuff under my knees swell then my feet go cold and me knees go cold and ive been in the house keeping warm

anybody got this and any tips to put on cold sores on feet

dont mind aching knees but cold feet i draw the line at.

good news is i see the knee man tomorrow they changed me date cos he was not on on the 23

  • Hi there . Are you sure these red areas are not chilblains (Peroni) this can be a for of vasculitis. You can treat yourself with friars balsam with weak iodine. But I would see you own GP for some advice. Especially as you have other areas that are affected.

    Cotton wool between the toes often helps with the circulation.

    Good luck

  • Left a private message for you JOHN JOHN, Good luck for tomorrow Xx

  • Could also be Raynauds - either primary or secondary it makes you fingers and sometimes feet go icy cold and white/ blue? I'm the same these days have to wear gloves and thick socks - today I thought I was going to turn into an ice cube even indoors in Tescos but for me I think it's the MTX, menopause or RA (or all three!) Tilda x


    me dad never told me this would happen at 62

    i will try petrol and a match this afternoon but the buggers are starting now and im in the house tryed thick socks with lining in them dosnt work that good

  • Well I'm in good company then! TTxx

  • Hi John, sorry to hear about the menopause. Cold things stimulate circulation as well as hot ones, better in my experience, I find a bag of frozen peas on my joints for 10 minutes gets the blood going round. Probably not much good once your feet are cold - mine get dead cold too - but might prevent the coldness starting. I think I'll experiment with a bag of peas before bed as that's when my feet start feeling like they are in the freezer. Luce x
