Default feet feel wet?

I'm not sure where this goes but since I have diagnosed cervical issues with cord involved, I thought I'd start here.

Anytime my feet get cold, or even cool, upon warming they feel wet...and I mean sopping wet. I'll go to see what I've stepped in, or to change my socks but everything is bone dry. It really messes with your mind when reality doesn't match what your body is telling you.

Does anyone know anything about this or similar? I'm trying to figure out what I can here and what may, or may not, be important to tell NS when the time comes.

This has just started this winter.

Thanks, in advance, for any input.

My Mood:

Yep, know exactly what you're talking about. It's nerve involvement/damage. I have the same problem. I'll go and check my feet to see if they've perhaps been sweating (gross) and are now cold, but they're bone dry. This has happened so many times that i just quit checking cause they're never wet. LOL
Many times my feet are very cold - but my circulation is fine -- my doc has checked it several times with some testing gear he has. So he says it's nerve involvement and/or nerve damage.

That's what I figured too since i've been dealing with this nonsense for 27 years.
Have your doctor check your circulation in your legs/feet just to make sure. God bless & take care. Hugs, Lee
