Thyroid function. I have been experiencing pain in hands/feet/elbows worst in feet for a year. Feet get cold where you can feel the cold to touch as opposed to numb. I have not gained weight but do eat less as less of an appetite. My weight is very stable

It's possible all your studies could be normal, but will need to be monitored ...Read more

My husband has numbness from groin to feet. He has had every nerve test on back and legs he is fine. No drs know what the problem is it'd getting wors?
? Spinal cord: Given the history i would wonder whether a spinal cord problem can be causing the symptoms. If that is so usually there is some disturbance in bowel or bladder function. There may also be imbalance and weakness in the lower extremities. Please have a thorough neurologic exam to determine the need for imaging of your spine. Good luck and well wishes. ...Read more
