My Husbands Right Leg Is Stone Cold All The Time, Any Suggestions What To Do About It?

Even when he's feeling warm, the write leg feels like ice to the touch and cold to him.

Answer

latulley,

I'm just now seeing your question. There are many possible causes for a leg to feel cold to the touch. If you feel the ice, then your husband needs to be seen by his PCP. This would be different than parasthesias which only your husband would feel.

There is much more information needed to be able to give any suggestions. For instance, is he wheelchair bound? If so, there is an increased risk of blood clots.

Have you been traveling out of the country recently? There are parasitic infections which can cause cold leg syndrome. Even if not traveling, there are a number of infections which can cause trouble in the legs.

Basically, my thoughts go to infection or vascular disease. As an example, Raynaud's Disease which Merely Me mentions is itself a vascular disease.

After your husband has been to see his doctor, please come back and let us know what the cause of his cold leg is? thanks.
