Re: winter foot pain

What you are describing sounds like Raynaud's Phenomenon. It is basically a spasm of small blood vessels in the extremities. It may or may not be associated with an autoimmune disorder. There are mentions of treatments in medical literature ranging from oral medication to topical medication and also just keeping the feet warm and dry. There is also a possibility that you may have elevated cryoglobulins. You might want to check with an internist or rheumatologist.

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
