Why do i feel cold and tingly all the time

Hi--how long has this been going on, and what are your medical conditions and medications?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Several months

I have always assumed it's part of menupause

which i began at 50

It has been severe with multiple hot flashes daily.

Have tried hormone creams, black cohosh, evening primrose ineffective

Am currently on no medication

No high blood pressure history or heart disease

Cold numbing sensation is non-stop and very distressing

Could it be nerve related.

I am retired with very little daily stresses

Used to have severe migraines, but last one was 4=5 years ago

just to be certain here--your doctor knows about all your symptoms and has run tests to see what the problem might be?

It has been one year since I have been to a doctor

OK--all I can do here is tell you my thoughts and what I would do to work this up to find the cause. Will that be sufficient?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I think I need to go see a doctor and have tests done

Definitely. While some of this could be menopausal, you need the following tests--thyroid, cortisol levels, a check for diabetes and for autoimmune disorders like lupus, vitamin levels (especially B12), and a check for anemia. Any one or more of these would explain your symptoms.
