I had burns in 90 % of my body of which 65 % were third-degree when I was 13 months old. My left leg was burned so bad that the hospital wanted to amputate, but my parents refused. I am 36 years old now. My circulation has gotten increasingly worse as I have aged to the point that I have severe neuropathy in my left leg and right foot. Winter is severely painful. My leg and feet will turn extremely purple and freezing cold and it is difficult to get the temperature back to normal and the feeling to return. I have tried pressure hose, warmer clothes, etc. It does not work. I was wondering if there is anything I can do besides warm shower, laying putting my feet up, and a warming blanket. It takes all of this to get my legs to stop hurting and it takes a couple of hours each time. It is directly affected by temperature. In the summer I cannot sweat. So, my legs swell. In the winter they turn purple and I cannot walk. I just hate this. I cannot stand the pain and the way it interferes with my life every day. I take Gabapentin, Celebrex, Vitamin D and Singulair.
