It's normal for me! My friend bought me an electric foot warmer last year and it's great. Nothing else warms up my feet. Obviously, can't take it out, but I use it when I get home. I wear UGG boots in winter but still get cold feet.

My friend bought it from Lidl, but I'm sure you can get them from other shops. An electric foot warmer is my tip for winter (and British summers)!

Hi guys wanted ask those of you on Dex trial if u have experienced stomach upsets and dizziness, my son has had both of these since being on the trial, he has the sleepless night problem but just wondered about the other stuff. Feet ok?

Hi the dizziness might be down to fatigue which i also suffer with, eating regular will help with this. I always try to take the dex with a meal also.

Hi Chris, I suffer from cold feet too and put this down to poor circulation due to mobility problems, I find it worse laying down in bed and use microwavable foot warmers. Regards Mark.

Hi Ang

I'm having trouble with my toes. They've always been curling over but now one has totally bent and it's difficult to get my shoes on. Really upsetting. I have to make an appointment with a podiatrist. I hope that the swelling will go down for Mick.

Best wishes

Sarah xx

Sarah it was 30 in Argos, they are on eBay for 20 plus 5 postage but I couldn't wait.
Ang, in bed it's not so bad just when I'm sat in recliner.

That will be the best 30 you ever spent Chris! I also use mine in the recliner. If I don't my feet will be cold in bed too. Enjoy it!

Sorry Sarah, I now recall you buying some toe crests back in 2008 but they weren't any good because you have long toes grrr. back to the drawing board.

Ang, it's a shame they didn't help Mick. I personally haven't tried them, however others have said they work and are able to wear shoes again.

Elle, that is mad lol what did gp say when you said you hadn't got any?

You have an incredible memory! I actually went to the orthopedic department at the Royal Free after that. They were absolutely useless and said they couldn't help. Saw my hospice doctor today and he said he'll look into where else I can go. In the meantime, I'm taping my toes together with micropore tape and it's working quite well. Still can't wear normal shoes, only trainers and Uggs, which is ugghhh!!!

I've always had really cold extremities - Reynaud's syndrome - and now I shake when I'm cold. After summer in Italy I am dreading winter in the UK! I asked my doctor whether Raynaud's and MND were connected - he dismissed the idea, and maybe no causal link. But surely if muscles are wasting, they are doing less and so generating less heat? Does that make biological sense??
