    Cold feet

    My feet are always freezing cold even though I wear thick thermo socks. I can't feel my feet temp so it does not affect me. Its this sign of neurone damage because of the disease? At night in bed my feet warm up under the duvet.

    My feet have been freezing since onset. A few hot days last micro summer were the only days I didn't wear four pairs of thermal socks and microwave heated slippers. 😃😃x

          Yep John, my feet (knees down, in fact) feel deathly cold too - it's the perfect storm of poor circulation in unmoving legs coupled with atrophied muscles.

          I wear thermal socks, use rechargeable insoles, hot wheat packs, whatever it takes. Elevating the legs helps circultion (that's why they can warm up in bed) as does massage and moving the joints, but it doesn't mean they stay warm for long...

          Oh the joys 🙄

              I’ve always had cold hands and often cold feet. MND has made these worse. I bought fine gloves that have silver in from a reynards (excuse my spelling) site. These are great and I can still use my phone and iPad when I’m wearing them. I bought slippers from the same site but they’re uncomfortable. But my husband bought me boot type slippers and they’re great. Lynne

                  Trust you janette!
                  we've been complaining about cold feet. Stephen ok during the day but night time he's cold. I've hunted out some big chunky socks but I really struggle getting them on his feet. Anyone got any ideas?

                          Andy wilson If you're talking about Riluzole, type the word into the search box and you'll find various threads on it. General consensus is, yes to take it. You should get regular blood tests to make sure your liver is tolerating it. And, if people get other side effects - fatigue, nausea, for example - these typically lessen over time.

                          It is your choice to take it, or not.

                          Love Ellie.

                            Hi Andy,

                            Please don't ever say sorry for sounding down. You are doing well to join the forum so soon after being diagnosed. It took me a long time to accept my diagnosis and post on here .

                            The early days are totally overwhelming so try to take one day at a time.. easier said than done I know. Things do get easier to accept and although we are all on a similar journey people have a different progression.

                            Take care,
                            Love Debbie x
