Cold does affect me but not to a great extent. I just dress in layers and I bought an automatic car starter so my car is warm when I get in. Works great! What REALLY effects me is heat and HUMIDITY. I bought a dehumidifier this summer and it has helped a GREAT DEAL. I keep the humidity in my house 60% or below and it makes a tremendous difference. I highly recommend it.
My friend has been hospitalized on and off the past few months and I did quite a bit of walking from her rooms to and from the parking deck without thinking until I gave out. Then a wheelchair and aide assisted me. My COPD and anxiety and recliner were my norm. My leg muscles being worked unconsciously was a godsend. I needed it to see the hope of pain and breathing improvement. SO now I'm mindful to walk the dog farther,to walk and stretch some, be mindful of sedentary danger and rest when needed. Breathing much better hopeful ...
I love those hand warmers that you squeeze to warm up. I'd use them for my feet except for the neuropathies.
Cold doesn’t bother me at all. Truthfully I like it kinda cold. Now heat and humidity I can’t deal with. I just stay indoors during the day.
Just saying. I wear them because I need to keep my fingers warm enough to do blood sugars and my home INRS. Its adjusting. I find that I had increasing symptoms for a year before diagnosis. When I FINALLY got one in July, I had already made quite a few adjustments as things got worse. When they finally did the right heart catheterization I had changed a lot, because I couldn't breathe and do my activities of daily living. I'm still a bit warm, but my fingers and toes are icy.
Tangential information, sorry.
