Question a complication?

when it gets cold out
I have 1 foot I cant make warm
I tried 2 or 3 socks
but its still cold
sometimes so cold it hurts
so it still has pain/not numb
and some days I have to stay inside
because the foot just feels too cold

is this a diabetes complication?

It may be a diabetes complication or it may be from something else. When my feet get like that I drink lemon and ginger tea. I also made some ginger ointment that I rub into my feet. The biggest change was when I cut carbs further and totally cut out alcohol until the bad weather passed.

Hope your toes feel better soon.

Like Judy-in-France said, it may be. Until you have a talk with your doctor you will not know what it may be. Suggest this as soon as possible.

Could be a circulatory issue that can be worsened by diabetes.....as already said talk with your doctor soon on this....

You can order electric socks on line. They work with a 9V battery, and keep you feet real warm. Many outdoors men where them under their boots when it is real cold. Do a search for "electric socks"....

Good Luck

The socks sound interesting, but I would go carefully if you have any neuropathy in your feet. I don't know if they are adjustable temp-wise, you might burn your feet and not realize it.

Good point, but these socks are only one temperature and that is very low. You cannot tell the are working until they have been on your feet for a while. These have been around for over 20+ years....they are safe to use!

I have a cold leg (outer side from ankle to mid-calf) that isn't troublesome during the summer but is obvious in cold weather. It is caused by a pinched nerve in my back, I think. It has never gotten better or worse over the years. I wear leg warmers in the winter to mask the cold feeling.

Weird things nerves do. I have a spot on my left outer thigh that feels wet as if i had splashed cold water on it. But when I check it it isn't wet at all-just feels that way from the inside.
