Post hypoglycemia and foot problems

To start off, I have hypoglycemia, and over the past couple of weeks, I have been noticing problems with my feet. I absolutely cannot tolerate cold weather anymore. If I go outside without two or three layers of socks and insulated shoes, my feet freeze. It takes hours to warm up my numb toes unless I take a hot shower.

In the mornings, I get pain in my toes and the upper part of my feet. Sometimes during the night I wake up and have to pop my toes or make sure my toes are straight because I have throbbing pain in the upper part of my feet. I sort of use one of my feet to hold the other down flat lol.. Hard to explain!

In the shower my toes turn pale. Im a few minutes, after getting out of the shower, they'll return to their normal color. Also, the tops of some of my toes are a darker color. It's not very noticable, but it's something I have been wondering about.

Does this sound like a complication of hypoglycemia or does this sound as if I have a totally separate problem? Thanks!

best to get to the doctor to find out. Foot problems can be very dangerous for diabetics.

Rachel -
I'm no doctor, but it sure sounds like a circulation problem to me. I would definitely advise seeing a doctor soon. It's probably not an emergency, but it's also not something that you should let slide.

I've not heard of this as a complication of hypoglycemia, but anyone, even otherwise healthy people, can develop both circulatory problems and neuropathy.

I have one scheduled for the end of this month sometime.

I was thinking it might just have to do with my intolerance to temperature change, but I don't know. My nose is another thing that freezes lol.. It takes awhile to warm it up too!

This will be the first thing I mention when I go to see her. Is there something I can do to relieve the pain in the meantime? Thanks for the responses.
