You know that feeling. The achiness, tingling, and painful sensation that happens when your nerve endings are damaged or restricted in some way. Sure, you can handle one or two days, but living that way for months or years can be life-altering and just plain depressing. Then, stack wintertime on top of that.
February oftentimes proves to be one of the coldest months of the year, but that doesn’t mean you have to feel the most pain from symptoms of neuropathy during that time. Yes, cold weather can intensify pain due to restricted blood vessels, especially in the hands and feet. Our bodies naturally slow down blood circulation when they are cold in an attempt to preserve the body’s core temperature. For those dealing with neuropathy, it’s harder for our bodies to measure the effects of the cold when we already feel numbness and tingling regularly. Our body’s “alert system” is just not working properly to tell us that something could be wrong. This blood vessel restriction can also reduce the feeling in our extremities, causing issues with balance as well. But even though these are commonly the worst months for patients dealing with pain, they don’t have to be anymore.
