I have had cold hands and feet for most of my life. I have been recently diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse (MVP) which causes arhythmia(sp?). I have facial swelling and swelling in one of my calves. The only time the swelling subsides is when I am close to my minimum weight for my height and age. I also have a low blood pressure (100/65) and a low resting heart rate (60). I exercise at least 3 times a week. I have a hard time eating raw fruits and vegetables but, I can eat them in other forms i.e., dried, cooked, etc... I am extremely sensitive to what is happening in my body. I can feel everything including an unfertilized egg bursting inside of me during ovulation.

I would like to know what I can take or do to warm my hands and feet.

Any insight or direction as to what I should ask or where I should go would be greatly appreciated.

  • I get cold hands and feet, it sucks. Mostly have it solved but it was still an issue while I surfed the web, and my heater was on all the time. Tried a space heater, and all kinds of stuff -- then I found the Heated Mouse - awesome products. I have the heated mouse and the Heated Slippers -- when I sit down and plug-in to surf the web, I'm no longer cold! So great I had to share with everyone, highly recommended! The get power from the USB on your computer. So neat!
