If you live by the adage “cold feet, warm heart,” you may not realize that lingering cold feet and toes can be a sign of something more sinister than frigid winter temperatures.
The simplest reason is lack of warmth. Another common reason is poor circulation, when not enough blood is getting to your feet to keep them warm. Circulatory issues can also be caused by underlying health problems.
Here's a look at some of the more serious reasons you may be suffering from feet that always seem to be cold:
Anemia occurs in those who lack enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen throughout the body, particularly the extremities like the feet. The most common symptom of anemia is feeling weak and tired, but other symptoms include cold hands and feet due to lack of blood circulation.
It is also known as a Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD), atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. It can take years for the walls of the arteries to harden and years for symptoms to show. Typically, the earliest signs are leg discomfort, pain and cramping, particularly when walking, but other symptoms include cold feet and redness or pain in the feet and toes.
Poor circulations as well as peripheral neuropathy, or nerve pain, are common ailments among diabetic patients who also heal slowly due to lack of blood flow. Often, cold feet including numbness and tingling are typical symptoms that become worse at night.
Avoid soaking your feet in hot water to warm them up (you may not realize the water is too hot). Instead, use Footlogix cold feet formula and always wear warm socks. It's also a good idea to exercise regularly and wiggle your toes and feet when sitting to help with circulation.
Lupus, a chronic auto-immune disorder, can result in the development of Raynaud’s Syndrome, causing the contraction of the small blood vessels, preventing blood flow to the skin in hands and feet. Using Footlogix Cold Feet Formula, may help with these symptoms.
The female hormone oestrogen, which regulates the peripheral blood vessels and increases during menstruation, will often make us more sensitive to colder temperatures.
It is a type of vasospastic disorder that is more common in women and in those who live in colder climate conditions. In addition to cold feet, affected areas turn into white, then into blue and lastly into red when they warm up. In mild cases, you can treat Raynaud's with the Footlogix Cold Feet Formula daily to help with circulation.
Many smokers are not aware that smoking not only results in cold feet but poor circulation too. The feet and legs show the early signs of poor circulation. Though cold feet are the early symptoms that surface at the same time can lead to other ailments such as tissue damage, pain, ulcers and even gangrene.
Poor blood circulation and lack of activity will typically result in cold hands and feet. However, a bit of light exercise will restore blood flow and heat to the muscles and skin fairly quickly.
Cold feet can be a common side-effect of certain prescription medications—such as beta blockers for the treatment of high blood pressure and the prevention of migraine headaches, or even birth control pills, which can affect hormone levels.
Footlogix Cold Feet Formula stimulates micro-circulation and provides relief to cold feet, bringing them to a normal state; the feet no longer feel cold, however, they do not (and should not) feel hot.
Plenty of people will experience cold feet at some point in their lives, but if you think that your cold feet could be a symptom of something more serious than just needing Footlogix Cold Feet Formula and a blanket, make an appointment with your doctor.
