Hi Everyone,
Whilst sitting at the computer last night I noticed that my feet were quite cool as the night wore on they were freezing and had turned white. The feeling was of cold ice or snow had deeply penetrated the bone. Mind you it was quite warm outside and inside. Could this be Raynauds Phenomenon?. They did not turn blue at all. It took 2 pair of socks and turned on an electric blanket to thaw out when I eventually went to bed!.
I usually have the opposite problem with hot tingly feet at night.
Any imput would be appreciated.
Thanking you

Hi Ced, that definately sounds like Raynauds. I also have Raynauds, my feet and hands turn white, my feet turn blue as well. When I have that awful feeling of extreme cold, it takes a while for the thawing out process. I have mitts and feet warmers from a company online. You can email me and I will give you the name of the company. Take care.

Hi Ced,

It certainly sounds like Raynauds. I've provided a link for you, that will be you information regarding this. Please keep socks on and keep warm!

I have Raynaud's and that's what it sounds like to me. Take care and stay warm. I too have warmers for my feet and hands. They're great!

As everyone else has said, it sounds like it could be Raynaud's. My rheumatologist did tell me that you didn't have to have all 3 color changes (white, red, and blue) to get the diagnosis....2 was enough. So, if they turned white when cold and then bright red upon warming up (like my hands turn bright red when I put them in hot water after being cold). You will definitely want to tell the rheumatologist about this when you have your visit next week.

Warm wishes,

The title of your post caught my eye.

Last week, I was sitting on the couch with my feet up (with legs straight out). All of a sudden, I had this weird cold AND slight tingling feeling in my feet. BUT, the cold feeling felt like it was radiating from the inside out; like starting at the bone and moving out toward the skin! Strangest thing I ever felt.

When my hands are exposed to cold, my fingers and toes get VERY pale (I don't know if white is the right word) - but my finger and toe-tips remain pink.
