Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

No He has just said his feet are cold and he has had a curclelation test and all was good When I felt his feet tonight they feel warm but he said they are cold on the inside

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No His GP is baffled as well

Doctor: Dr. Nina Lim, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago

Because your husband has been experiencing the sensation of cold feet and his feet don't feel cold to the touch, this may be a sign of a nerve problem such as a condition called peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy occurs as a result of nerve damage caused by injury or an underlying medical disorder. I assume that his primary doctor has done a complete set of blood work and everything is normal - I would ask about results of his blood sugar (rule out diabetes), thyroid test (rule out hypothyroidism) and vitamin B12 levels (rule out vitamin B12 deficiency). If all of his lab test results are normal, I would speak to his doctor about ordering a nerve test called an EMG test or electromyogram. This test will confirm if he has indeed some nerve damage to his legs.

I hope this response was helpful. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
