Why Are My Feet Always Cold?

By    |   Friday, 15 May 2015 02:37 PM

Question: My daughter recently told me her legs from the knees down get numb and her feet are cold all the time. She works in a factory and is on her feet most of the time. It sounds like poor circulation to me and I think she needs to have it checked out. What do you think? She doesn't smoke but does drink.

Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Numbness and cold feet when standing are not normal conditions and should prompt a visit to the doctor.

Age of onset is important here to provide some lead for you. If your daughter’s symptoms are due to a circulatory problem, which is possible, a doctor can provide some guidance on treatment.

Stop the armchair diagnosis. This is a condition that requires professional attention.
