  • Hello,i'd like more informatio.What time does the pain and numbness appear? mornings, aftermnoos?have you had joint pain? are only you hands and feet affected? do you have any other joint affected? have you any rash in the skin? Do your hands get purple or pale sometimes after you put them in cold water or cold things? Do you feel muscle weakness? maybe do you know about your family diseases?

  • Liver issues can cause itchy hands and feet. You should ask the doctor to check your LFT's to rule out the liver as a cause. Kiera
