Hi
when you say cold, do you mean you get a sensation of a cold feeling or that it feels cold to touch?
I can only relate to that I dont feel cold but wen I touch my legs they feel realy cold .

Did the Doctor say if it was a IBD related illness?. Do you also get restless legs- I get this and it drives me crazy,I have menstioned it but never realy seems to get addresed, so on my next vist Im going to bring it up as it is getting worse.
I hope the medication your Doctor has given you is helping ☺

I used to get restless leg. My chiropractor thinks there is something going on with a disc in my back. I don't know. I may go for x rays next month. I don't rule out that it might be IBD related.

If it occurs when sitting, there could be an issue with a nerve being pinched somewhere....and/or blood flow being compromised.....

Good idea to get it checked out.

Can the chiropractor order the x rays or should it be my GP?

Hi there

I'm not sure if this is what you're talking about but I sometimes wake up at night not feeling one of my arms or legs anymore.
The feeling comes back when I wiggle my fingers or toes.
The doctor told me I was probably dehydrated due to not consuming enough salt...(unrelated to the Crohn's). It did help to use more salt, but of course don't do this if your blood pressure is already high...
Hope this helps.
