Jan 24, 2017 7:54 PM

Oh no Mizzy, you need to go to the doctor again about it. Surely you need to get it investigated?

Jan 24, 2017 8:55 PM

Mizzy, I've been having issues with my feet this week. They are getting so cold all day that I wrap them in a heating pad they never got warm I got a cramp in my heal so bad I was screaming to the top of my lungs. I think my neighbors heard me across the way. Nothing is helping to warm them up blankets, socks, footwear! I'm trying to get in to see my doctor tomorrow. No swelling or color change just cold as hell. Any ideas of what this could be? I knew to all this.

@mermaid4 we'll I use to have cold spells my feet n hands are always cold cuz I don't have a thyroid any more no way change or help it just fact life, but my fibro HEIGHTENS every thing so it does that to the cold to it feels like it's coming from in my bones going outward... So fuzzy socks, hot showers last 30 min or longer blankies that's all I got sorry good luck it's not fun 🙄😶hugz

MizzMonroe, I'm glad you have more energy than last month. But for me, with asthma issues it takes extra time to fully get over any lung or upper respiratory sickness. You be careful to pace your activities with rest so you don't relapse. I hope you get better real soon!

@Mermaid4, I have hypothyroidism, fibro & sjogrens. Two docs suspect possible Raynaud's as well but with it they must see the symptoms. I also have a vascular circulatory issues; PoTS & vein reflux. My hands and feet are always cold. I bought my hubby some Alpaca wool socks in November, because he's always had freezing cold feet to touch but they sweat in regular socks. He says his feet stay warm in the Alpaca wool socks without sweating. I'm trying to find some for myself now. Maybe you can get some and try.

Hugs love & prayers to all! 🙂💕🙏🌸

First of two pic posts too much keep typing lol

Deep breath in.... Exhale slow & relax. I'm sorry this happened. My thyroid was abnormal in a CT scan and my PCP blew it off. My endocrinologist put me on T3 & T4 med because my thyroid is damaged and not functioning properly, even though my typical thyroid labs are"normal". Discuss it with the Ortho doc. Hospital docs only address what you are in the for. I now get any and all test reports, otherwise who knows what might get missed. Hugs love & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌸

I wo t be seeing the Orthapedic because they don't have one in there program to help me, so I'd have pay out right idk how much but when I said let me guess like 1 or 200. She laughed says no honey way more then that, so yea I will be suffering until I either can afford the oethapedic or my benefits go thru so I guess I'm gonna be living a life on my back feet in air most my days cuz other wuse swelling n pain get worse... Just another long battle FML.. PS I had thyroid cancer they removed goiter which was size of a softball, then removed my thyroid to be safe so I understand throid issues I been there done that still not regulatedcit happen when I was 23/24 ..... I'm currently 39 I suggest learning u'r body and symptoms, my doctors ask why I need them I laugh say I can be organized explain perfectly fine but anything else HELP!!!! BUT I CAN TELL YOU WHEN IM GETTING SICK, I CAN TELL U WHEN SOMETHINGS NOT NORMAL NOT RIGHT LISTEN N KEARN UR BODY WORK WITH IT!! MY BIG THING IS JOURNALING WHAT MY BIG ISSUES R LIKE SLEEP, ANXIETY, I can stop my brain whybi don't sleep either. ....i wish u luck with you thyroid me if I don't take my thyroid pills I will die, and I have tested it and it's horrrrrible... But at least I know what to watch for lol.. Hugz

Have you tried wearing compression socks or stockings? I started wearing them 6 years ago for my feet swelling, but I'm having to wear 30mmg strength. I wife knee highs up until December, when they put me in thigh highs, for the PoTS, venous hypertension and reflux. They were "oh so fun" getting use to! 😱 Lol You can find the less compression, like 15-20mmg at places like Walmart or Target or pharmacies. I'd suggest starting low. Hugs love & prayers things start to improve for you soon! 🙂💕🙏🌸
