What weather change means for Neuropathy patients?
Weather can dampen or elevate our mood pretty quickly. Those rainy days can make you want to curl up on the couch all day, and sunshine pushes you to go outside and lay on the grass. Cold weather can bring out the worst pain in those dealing with symptoms of neuropathy. Unfortunately, the pain cold and pain can last for several months.
When your body is colder, your blood vessels constrict, making it harder for blood to get to the nerves in your hands and feet. The result is increased pain. This can make even the simplest things so much more challenging. No one wants to live with chronic pain, especially during the holiday season when there are lots of things to be done and events to attend. 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.
