Numbingly cold!
« on: January 06, 2014, 12:11:47 PM »
A few days ago, I was outside with my daughter playing in the snow. It was 15 degrees Fahrenheit, and only around 2 degrees with the wind chill. I had dressed warmly a hat, gloves, winter coat and sweatshirt, and two pairs of socks. We stayed outside for 25 minutes, and then I had to come in. My toes were really numb!!! Its normal to get numb fingers and toes when in really cold weather, right?!?! I am trying not to worry about circulation issues!! I was fine after a minute inside, but I am also such a Nervous Nelly about these kinds of things!

My cardiologist told me a year ago that I have a great circulation system and everything is fine. Every winter I get that exact same thing with my feet while I'm trying to sleep and it's chilly in my room. Truth is I'm just a tall thin guy who needs to wear thicker socks.

Just remember when out in the cold to protect against frostbite though, and be on the lookout for bluing (cyanotic) skin and a hard waxy finish which is a sign of the tissues freezing.
