    yea dose make me wonder if it's a nerve thing with the. damage in spine area
    used to get numb hands. driving years ago. but thought it was. from vibrations off road. in steering wheel yet. did not get it from chainsaws only found out about neck disc with having a MRI for headache pains

    I did my back years ago tying to separate two fighting dogs. Kicked and missed. Leg went up and I heard a click. Six weeks in hospital and an op for 'decompression'.

    One of the symptoms was a "hot foot". My left foot felt very hot and was extremely sensitive to touch. Not sure if that would be the same thing. So, yes, pressure on the spinal cord can create wierd sensations. I still get cramps regularly.

    INSIST on seeing a neurosurgeon. Doctors get so many complaining of back problems they sometimes suffer from occupational deafness. Refuse to leave the surgery until you've been promised an appointment.

    Incidentally, I now have an electric heat pad that I use occasionally. It is brilliant! It's a small electric blanket about 2' square just for the feet. Highly recommended.

    I have arthritis in my spine and sometimes I get tingling down my legs and a numb patch , usually my right thigh, I put it down to a knackered back. My feet are always cold so I haven't noticed any difference there - that's what husbands and hot water bottles are for!

  10. It is quite common for older people to lose some sensation and even circulation to the extremities with increasing age, this may be exacerbated by other conditions or factors such as smoking. Pins and needle type sensation and cold or numb areas should be investigated by a doctor I would say to rule out anything more sinister.

    My bad back affected heat sensation in my left foot. It's called a "hot foot", though can feel cold too.

    Lieing in hospital, I couldn't even bear the sensation of bedding on my foot. Of course, the first thing visiting doctors would do was grab my foot! That used to make me hit the ceiling!

    Forty years later it is still not right but you learn to manage it. If your urine flow stops, see your doctor at once. And if you can't get to see him, call NHS24. That can be dangerous.
