Last night, my room was cold. So I pulled my quilt, and it kept me warm. But here's the thing. This morning, I got kinda cold again, so I got my quilt again. Then my neuropathy kicked in on my left hand, and right foot. Does cold weather affect neuropathy easier?

Cold definitely affects my neuropathy!!! I live in the south so thankfully it doesn't get THAT cold here (Mobile, AL) but during the winter I wear my husbands hunting socks on my feet…they are super thick and do the trick plus covers!! And besides having marked neuropathy in my hands I have carpal tunnel too so I have several pair of gloves but don't usually have to use them except when outside…my advice…keep them warm!! And are you on medication?? My doctor switched me from neurontin to Lyrica and I couldn't be more pleased with the effect of the meds!!!

No. I have not. Thanks for the links! They were interesting, and helpful. My neuropathy just kicked in this morning like I said.
