Not much to report sadly. Still no firm diagnosis. Bloods still inconclusive. Still awaiting scan appointment, was originally told it would be ultrasound but someone else mentioned MRI so I don't know. Wait and see I guess.
Anyway my reason for posting today (and apologies if this should be a question rather than a blog) but the last two days my feet have been absolutely freezing and its spreading up to my knees. I have a lot of pain in my feet anyway, feel like I'm walking on a pebbled beach most of the time. Also walking isn't easy without a stick and even then I can't walk far without wanting to rip my feet off and throw them in the nearest bin, if you know what I mean.
So my question is, does anyone else have this? I've tried all sorts, wiggling and waggling, hot water bottle, two pairs of socks but they're just like blocks of ice. I do know I have poor circulation, always have had, but the podiatrist did a pulse test on my feet and said she would expect to hear three beats per pulse on someone of my age (48), the test behind my ankles was fine but on the top of my foot just above where the toes start it was only one beat per pulse and she said that was more like a person of 90!
So please does anyone have any fool proof ideas to warm my tootsies? I'm even considering buying one of those giant heated tartan boot things that you put both feet in but I'd rather not! (I just know I'd get up to walk away, forget about the boot thing and fall flat on my face!)
Thanks for listening (reading)
