Hi Calico, I have the numb feet, sometimes the burning sensations in both feet and fingers, fingertips, nailbeds etc... the ice cold I don't notice so much cos I think it's actually a relief (especially living here in Florida) but the only relief I've found when they get so numb they're in the pins and needles stages, is walking it off... if I can't walk, then it's the sitting dance... I move them, tap them, anything to get blood moving around to help carry off the sensations a little bit.
I've become really aware of it and sometimes when folks are asking me how I'm doing, and then telling me "oh I get that too!" ... I'll be standing there and comment, I don't think so, because as I stand here, my feet are going numb as we speak, it's like walking on a them when you've sat on them and they've fallen "asleep"... and they suddenly realize, oh, no I don't get that. My hands drive me the craziest with working on the keyboard... when my fingertips get all tingly... I have to shake them out trying to rearrange the tingles...
But so far for me, only moving and realigning my body positions has rearranged the sensations... it always only temporary though.
I'd love to hear anyone else's suggestions because this is a real nuisance symptom for me.
