My left foot is always cold.

Posted , 9 users are following.

I wonder if anybody else has experienced something similar? My left foot is nearly always cold. There is altered sensation as well, for instance if a few drops of water lands on it, it stings. I have to be careful when I get into a bath as well, as my foot doesn't register if it's too hot. It does warm up occasionally when I wear thick socks, but however many socks I wear in winter - it doesn't! Ooh reading that I sound weird! Am I ?!

    I don't think that's weird at all, it's sounds familiar to me. I'm ok mostly in summer or pretty hot days as soon as weather changes I have cold feet my feet change color all time. Sometimes blood pools to them then they change color they are purple when I come out if the shower or the bath blotches of white on purple . They are cold most if the time , but way better in hotter weather

    U are showing serious symptoms. I would like to urge u to see a doc. Keep a Joirnal of all UR symptoms to go over with him.. I could be any number of things UR doc has URUR medical history and can follow thru with a diagnosis .

    my feet get ice cold if i am still for too long esp in winter, but do warm up on movement i know what you mean on lack of sensation .i think its just nerve endings not picking up signals,due to the inflamation we all suffer, i am the same with steps curbs i think iv lifted my leg higer enough,then after banging eiher on the curb or the step i realise i havent lifted it enough, and my god does it hurt.

    I also find it uncomfortable to have my legs down in a normal sitting position . I have them raised. When I got fitted for a wheelchair I had to have them fit the foot plates as high as they would go. My chair looks like it's more for a child even then they could be higher for me. I use the chair when I can't walk. So when I go out I can't sit for long , I can't stand for long periods either , I'm like someone with ADHD , as I'm uncomfortable most of time with my legs.

      Yes I also find it difficult to have my legs down in a normal sitting position. Most comfy for me is legs slightly raised. My worry is that is only my left foot I have the problem with.

      Thanx for the reassurance that I am not the only one, Tina. Yes it would be interesting to see how many others it affects. When I go shopping in the fridge aisle of a supermarket it feels like a block of ice! Also have the feeling that it is in water, randomly. Back to the fridge aisle, my hands also go numb and start tingling when I leave!

      Hi Anne, Yes its the same for me too. My left foot goes a blue/purple coular as well. And for some strange reason my left leg is much more painful than the right.

      Hello Anne,

      My left foot doesn't change colour, but lloks perfectly normal. I have even asked my partner to feel it, to check it is not in my imagination! He loves that job! Also I do tend to get pain in both legs.
