Why do I get cold feet so easily?

I was wondering if anyone experienced the same issue? Is it related to the CP and if so, how? What can be done to remedy it?

Yes cold feet is quite common with people with cerebral palsy.  It is a circulation issue.  The best thing to do is rub your feet (or get someone else to do it) with some lotion until they are warm again.  Also wear really warm socks and see if changing the position of your legs helps.

Cold feet is sometimes put down to poor blood circulation.

Hi there Eagle, my name is Ashley.

The problem of cold feet and other extremities is often the norm with CP, I deal with it every day. Try to get circulation into your feet by exercising and stretching daily. If the problem still exsists, then you may want to be tested for anemia, which can cause low circulation and sluggishness due to lack of iron in the blood.

My daughter has the same thing but I had the same question. No matter whether I keep socks on her feet or what they are always ice cold.
