I'm a newbie. Thanks to Kayzee for pointing me in your direction. I have ice cold pain in my legs - it's a new symptom for me and very scary but I feel reassured to know I'm not alone! I'm just about to get in a boiling hot bath to try and relieve it. I can be ice cold in my legs and sweating in my top half and it's driving me up the wall. I explain to people but no-one can understand unless they've experienced it. To top that off, I'm having hot flushes cos I'm on hormone treatment!

Anyway, I'm very pleased to have found a place where I can share so thank you!

Hi Motherelle,
Thank you for your welcome.

Hi Freckles I find it very difficult to warm my fingers up after I've been out in the cold but your problem sounds worse. Have you looked into raynauds? My friend has it and has similar problems to you.

Have been given a neuro appointment for March 3rd - only 3 weeks after my GP referred me - is this a record, I wonder!
