I am new to this site and would appreciate any input. I've always been very sensitive to cold, but over the last few years I am also having issues with hot temperatures. In winter I wear socks around the house, and always wear normal shoes/boots. I have a heated mattress pad I turn on before bed because otherwise my feet are too cold, though I do wake up in the middle of the night to take off my socks.
When the weather is warm, especially when it is sunny, my feet (particularly my toes) get red and overheated. I actually prefer to wear closed-toe shoes if it is sunny as the sun just beats down on my toes. If its not sunny sandals or barefoot is better. This will happen when I'm exercising too, or sometimes when if I'm just walking around. I frequently wake up in the middle of the night because my feet are too warm. My feet, toes in particular, are very red and overheated (warm to touch), but I don't feel pain. I would say it's more of burn if anything.
I am mainly just wondering if this is anyone elses experience? Everything I've read on here indicates that peoples feet are warm year-round, and they are always wearing flip-flops. I am wondering if I don't have the right diagnosis? I've read that people can have both EM and raynauds but haven't really come across anyone with a case like mine. I did unfortunately have some toenail fungus that I left untreated for a few years (kicking myself for being too embarrassed to go to the doctor sooner) that spread to other toes and possibly mild athletes foot too. Did Lamisil and that really helped but it still creeps back up. Any chance this is residual of that? I am doubting it but just throwing it out there.
If my diagnosis is correct my case is quite mild at the time which I am very grateful for. I really feel for everyone on here who is struggling.
