Does anyone else have the problem where your hands, feet and nose get really cold. Like so cold they turn white and go a bit numb even with socks/gloves/etc. Any suggestions on how to mitigate this?

      yes, because of the lack of circulation of oxygenated blood with pots. getting movement to these areas helps me most.

      Yep! Me too. For me movement helps so rubbing my hands together or having someone rub my arms/lower legs can stimulate blood flow again. Heating pads are also great for that.

      That's called Raynods. I hate it. Just make sure the blood returns to your toes and fingers before they turn purple. Purple is bad.

      I use heating pads a lot. My body turns to ice so easily so if Im sitting I have one on my lap or my back and stick my hands in there when I need to. I find it helps keep the rest of me warmer too and sometimes I also take more salt since your blood helps keep you warm. I also put one on the floor to rest my feet on.
