My nerve pain feels like ice water running down my shoulders, arms, and legs. I don't remember it being so cold in the past. Sometimes I put on a sweater or stand outside to get some heat.
My bulging discs are starting to encroach on my nerve roots. I had a week-long episode of toe numbness, but that has gone away. I'm left with some pain and a feeling of coldness.
For those who have experienced this "cold" experience, did it eventually turn into numbness? Was the cold feeling temporary or has it stayed with you? Did it turn into a different kind of pain? (I'm not even sure why the nerves respond with a "cold" feeling. Is the coldness some kind of natural body anesthetic?) Are there any tips/tricks you have for dealing with the cold neuropathy?
