Have you noticed lately that your feet are cold and it is not just because of the winter weather?
Have you felt like you needed to wear multiple pairs of socks, yet your feet can never get warm?
Do you feel a tingling sensation in your feet when you are standing up or sitting down?
If you answered, “Yes,” to one or more of those questions, than you could have symptoms related to peripheral neuropathy.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord (peripheral nerves), often causing weakness, numbness and pain, usually in your hands and feet.”
Feeling “COLD” tingling sensations in your feet is often normal with peripheral neuropathy, due to the nerves that detect your temperature being damaged. And although you feel cold and tingling sensations in your feet, they will not be cold to touch.
However, your feet are not the only body part that can be affected by peripheral neuropathy.
Tingling and numbness often start in your hands and feet and move upward to your legs and arms. The tingling sensations can often lead to more intense symptoms, such as: feeling prickling or burning sensations, sharp or jabbing pain, and sensitivity to touch.
As peripheral neuropathy progresses, lack of coordination, muscle weakness, and loss of feeling may develop.
