My feet are so cold!

Some of those that know me from elsewhere know that I had a bit of a medical crisis a year ago. In fact, a year ago today I was still an inpatient at a rehabilitation facility. Since then, I have some numbness in my left foot and leg. Even before, I was suseptible to the cold, but now my left foot just hangs on to the cold. I guess a hot water bottle will be tucked into bed with me tonight.

I just stick my cold feet up against my husband as he is always warm. Not much, if anything, can be done for my issues.

The numbness has to do with nerve damage from Cauda Equina Syndrome. That is in addition to the poor circulation I have always had in my feet. Not much that can be done.

Warm socks and the hot water bottle will surely help.
