Nabila,

I'm not a doctor and hopefully one of them will respond to you but have you discussed this with your doctor? You may want to rule out any circulatory issues or any conditions such as Raynaud's Syndrome. I have the latter and I always have cold feet and cold hands. It's not usually considered a serious condition, just a very annoying one. I wear gloves very early in the fall and very late into the spring. And I just cover my feet with a blanket when I'm sitting down, especially at night if I'm wearing slippers. You'll learn to accommodate if it's Raynaud's.

I'm sorry to hear that you're still having pain.

I have never heard of Raynaud's Syndrome what is it and what are the symptoms? Have you got PF also?

Do a search and you will find plenty of information on Raynauds - symptoms, treatments, etc

Are you a dibetic if so that often happens I have that same problem my legs and feet get cold at a little of nothing.The Dr.has told me it has to do with poor circulation in the legs and the diabetis which I keep totally under controll.They also told me it has to do with change of life.Low minerals and vitamens.I'm not a Dr.so you really need to follow what ever they tell you hope one will answer you soon
