I am experiencing something different then my normal CP.  I feels like both my legs from the knee down falls asleep as well as both feet...then they start to ache and feel a burning or really cold feeling it also feels like someone is squeezing my ankles...has anyone experienced this?  Thanks for your help

I get this a lot too, Maybe seek out help from a neurologists and get nerve testing done...
Maybe also get bloodwork done, as low b-12's can also effect the nerves....but go see
a neurologists...Hope this helps and many many well wishes to you....
Hope your doing better soon

Thanks everyone....seen the doc yesterday and she definetly thinks it is just more issues with nerves. Going to physio to see if this is something they may help with, if it does not help after a couple of weeks she will book me with the neurologist. She does not think it is neuropathy as my sugars have been good. I will keep in touch and let you know how it goes....all I know it has sure got my anxiety up and you know what they say anxiety amplifies your pain...OH GREAT!!!

Take care all, Amy
