Are your hands and/or feet cold?

Many people on this forum report cold hands and or feet. The purpose of this poll is to see if people with MS are different than the general population in this respect.

I think we need some people without MS to respond as a control group. Spouses and friends are welcome.

Maybe you should have a category for treated people. Do you think we still have 'MS'? I don't. My hands and feet are sometimes cold, sometimes warm. Depends on air temperature and what I am wearing.

Similar to NHE, my right hand (and foot) are often cold, but not usually the left. Also, sometimes discolored (red/purple), but not very severely in my case.

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.

Cold hands and feet

Postby Ned » Wed Nov 03, 2010 3:09 am

Yep - the right side of my body is cooler than the left. It is also a different colour.
My right hand, leg & foot are troublesome

I've had angioplasty twice, the second time was only 9 days ago, but so far have had No improvement in my right side probs.

Yes. My feet are freezing. The only thing to get them back are hot baths and using my magnets helps.

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.
