Hi,

Today my left foot (toes) were colder than usual, I should mention I have not been diagnosed with Diabetes, but I have started getting really paranoid and think that my problem with cold feet could be related to Diabetes. I'll explain a bit more.

I went to the gym on Sunday afternoon, and dropped a 25kg plate on my left foot, didn't think anything of it, until today when I realised my left foot was cold. More so my toes. No other symptoms. 

I have tried warming them up using a water bottle which seems to be working, but I am planning on going to the doctor tomorrow morning. 

I have been researching it all night and wanted other peoples opinions, I understand that you are not doctors and cannot diagnose me etc etc. just wanted your opinions.

Thank you.

    I think you need to go to the hospital to have your foot checked as it sounds as if it is so badly bruised and you could have nerve damage there leaving it this long could of caused more problems, please let us know how you have got on, also did you cut it at all

      I went to the docs, he told me it was nerve damage, to rest my foot, and if any symptoms continue then to go back, he said to rest it. smile

      Hi glad you got it checked. Nerve damage needs to be carefully dealt with. I had some following surgery. It felt numb. I had to rub it with various textures to get sensation back. It took several months to work. I would definitely go back next week if it has not improved.

      Hi, how has yours improved? I havent been noticing any problems, apart from when I get home at night when I start thinking if I've noticed any numbess etc, and then I start experiencing it, I'm putting it down to Anxiety at the moment, as I was qutie worried about it. I'll see if it happens anymore and go back to the docs. smile

      Always best to check things out if you are anxious. Mine has so improved that I have 95 o/o of my sensations back.
