cold legs

does anyone get this have had it for around nine weeks thought it was a virus now gp wants to do some blood tests?

Yes, my legs frequently get  cold (and also sometimes overly hot). It can be quite common with us I think. Generally it doesn't bother me too much, though sometimes it can make my legs spasm. If it gets too distracting I use a hot water bottle, though I don't have the water very hot as it doesn't take much to warm my legs back up to a more comfortable temperature.

thanks Dan, have had blood tests done so should know by friday

Hi,

If I lay down on sofa for a nap my legs get freezing despit being covered with a rug. I use a wheat bag to warm them up or I can't get off to sleep.

Morning, I too get both, freezing cold, or burning hot, it used to come and go, now I have it all the time, I get pain with mine as well, I have also started to get this in my face, looks nice when it's on both sides and slightly pink, looks daft when it's one side and bright pink, and not nice because of the pain, I've had my circulation tested and that's good, my Neuro says it's the nerve endings, I take Gabepentin, however I have to keep increasing the dose, which I'm not happy about, take care, Jean x

thanks jean

Yes freezing cold feet and legs, most of the time, I have to warm the bed with an electric blanket, summer and winter alike.

Take care.

I know its going to be a bad day when I get out of bed and miss the floor.

I use an electric heat pad for my feet all year round as i have this problem. I've just ordered some wool bootees (cost £20) off Ebay and wear them without socks they are so toastie!!

well got the results back slight increase in my iron but otherwise blood tests fine, so guess this is down to MS does anyone know why this happens is it down to short circuiting again and except for whering woolly tights is there any other remedies
