Just wanted to give you all an update about my ice cold feet problem.
Last night I filled a square pan (looks like a dish pan) with fairly hot water from the tap, set it in the tub and sat myself on the edge of the toilet with my legs over the edge of the tub and feet in the pan. I put in some Epsom salts but since I had to add water (cool at first, then hotter), I'm not sure how much good the Epsom salts actually did. And since that position wasn't at all comfortable I didn't soak as long as perhaps I otherwise would have done if I had a great big bucket or kettle to use.
My feet were SO cold that my toes were actually white! I had to start with my heels and gradually lower the rest of the feet into the water or it would have been painful.
However, after "x" number of minutes I could submerge my feet and ankles and after another "x" number of minutes my toes were PINK AGAIN! And my feet were warm, warm, warm.
Then I put on my wool sleep socks, brushed my teeth and climbed into bed instead of doing other stuff as I usually do late at night. Result: I was able to go to sleep quickly and comfortably!
I will do this again.
NOW, I can work on the magnesium problem..........
