About 8 years ago my toes started going numb yet tingling at the same time (I know it sounds odd) they also got freezing cold. Maybe about once every 3 or more months they would burn with heat. This spread to my feet and is now above my ankles. It also seems to have gone to my hands except that they feel as if someone is hammering wood splinters into them, mostly under the nails and the fingertips. The have also stiffened up so that I can no longer make a fist. The pain in both my hands and feet is unrelenting (24/7)and has gone from bad to worse. It is actually undescribable and the closest that I can get is to say that it's like the pain you get if you stick your foot (or hand) into a bucket of ice and keep it there. They burn, to the ultimate degree, with cold (regardless of the weather). It is excrutiating and I'm not sure that I can hold out much longer. I have had all the tests, blood flow, diseases etc etc. No doctor or specialist has a clue and I don't think they understand the height of this pain. It is debillitating and I am desperate.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
