Do you have Raynauds?  I do and when my hands get cold they get numb/tingly often for hours.  They also change colors.  Red/white/blue.  My friend even described them as magenta.  My feet do the same thing sometimes.  My legs do not get shaky though.

I have a terrible time doing stairs. And my hands get numb too. But I have pretty bad circulation sometimes. If I sleep wrong, my hands go numb. I have to keep them above my heart. I don't know if it is a fibro thing or not. Somebody said carpel tunnel?

 I also have the same problem. There are times I get on my hands just to climb the stairs because my legs just don't want to move they hurt so much. Also my hands get numb and then tingley. Also I have Reynauds disease and my fingers especially in the winter get numb and they hurt for hours before the blood starts to flow again in them. Some days are good and some can be soooooooooo bad.  greyhounds mom  blush

How do you get tested for reynauds when I go to the dr they just tell me its poor circulation they treat me like I'm an idiot sometimes I do know the difference it shouldn't take hr after hr of complete numbness and pain then tingling for poor circulation and my hands get really white and my palms red and my fingers sometimes get blue not all the time

I was dx'd with Raynaud's back in the 1970's.  I don't remember all the tests I had but I remember seeing a specialist, orthopedic surgeon I think. I was tested to make sure I didn't have any of the things like rheumatoid arthritis etc.  One thing he did was have me put my hands in ice water and then he watched what happened.
Of course they went red, white and blue. shocked
I have just learned to live with it.  I wear gloves a lot and try not to get chilled.  I hate getting stuff out of my freezer.  Preparing cold food that I have to touch is a problem.  My hands go completely numb a lot also.
