my hands and feet are like ice plus a bonus of purple swollen feet. except when i get up in the morning they are normal. got treated in albany they warmed up some for awhile but back to the same crap now and getting worse.
So far my poll is turning out to be a dud. It just shows that most people have cold hands and feet regardless of whether they have MS or not. Yet when I read the accounts of people with MS they have ice cold feet that sometimes are turning purple. That doesn't sound like anything seen in the general population.
I have MS i am in a wheelchair 24/7 since breaking my leg. Prior to that about 4 years before I had developed dropped left foot. About two years ago my gp noticed my left foot was cold. It was summer, warm out. My right foot was warm. I had the angioplasty last April, and my azygous vein was the width of a few hairs for a short distance, 80% blockage. Doctor was only able to widen it by 30% Needless to say myh left foot turned warm ande has stayed warm since then, but still in wheelchair, muscles so weak. Im 35 and live in Canada, which says much. I hate this country with a passion.
Civickiller, your feet are cold in Hawaii? That is salt in the wound. In 80 degree weather.
My hands and feet were ice cold for as long as I can remember. After CCSVI venoplasty, they've warmed up. It might be an improvement to the autonomic nervous system, with improved ability to self-regulate temperature.
