Hmmmm, I was 99 degrees F this morning when I woke up. I was just 99.4 before eating lunch. Yet…my feet are still cold.
My feet (and hands) have always been cold. In fact, in winter I’ve actually gotten chillblains on my feet. This happens when your feet are very cold and you try and warm them too quickly and nerves burst and cause insanely itchy bumps.
Also, when I’m in the house my feet will be ice cold, but if I’m outside long enough in the Texas heat, my feet will warm up but when they do they become red and inflamed and feel ON FIRE.
So my question is, in a case like mine where I have what seems to be more of a circulation problem, should I just focus more in internet temp versus how my feet feel?July 7, 2013 at 10:26 pm #7628

Chelcw, I’ve been wearing socks and shoes per the advice of a Chinese healer. I used to always wear sandals and flip flops and be barefoot at home and my feet were cold but I was so used to it that I didn’t even notice. She recommended that I wear socks, shoes, slippers, etc unless it’s really hot. Since temperature fluctuates, I pretty much always wear socks and shoes or Uggs and slippers. Right now I’m in smartwool socks at home.
Maybe you could try the same since your feet are cold? I also soak my feet every night and then hit them hard 36 times on the arch of each foot. Not sure what the cold feet means in relation to temperature though?
By the way, my feet do the same thing when hot. When I was at coachella (music event in the dessert) my friends would always think my feet were sunburned because they would be so swollen and bright read. They weren’t sunburned, just hot.July 7, 2013 at 11:21 pm #7636CathyLParticipant
Just wondering what your pulse was when you woke and had a 99F temp? High pulse, over 85bpm along with high temp could mean that your stress hormones are keeping your temp high. If that is the case, eating might actually lower your heart rate and temp.July 8, 2013 at 12:56 pm #7709
Thanks for the responses. Cathy, interesting about the high pulse thing. I just took my temperature and it was 98.9 and I took my pulse also which was 70 bmp. 70 is actually very good for me, as it is normally higher. I always get nervous in general when I go see a doctor and I have to warn them ahead of time not to freak out when they test my pulse, because it is going to be over 100 due to my anxiety about just being there. ;)
Saisrice, good to know I’m not the only one with the foot issue. I will try the sock/shoe thing. I’m pretty bad about only wearing sandles. Even my work shoes are dressy slip on sandles. It is very rare that I wear socks and shoes except for in the winter time.
