Here are some of the signs that demands your attention according to your feet.
Does your feet constantly cold? It can be a sign of various ailments such as poor circulation, anemia, diabetes, or Raynaud’s disease – which causes blood vessels to constrict when nerves react strongly to cold temperatures.
2. Enlarged big toe
If you are suffering from a painful toe that is red, hot, and swollen, it is possible that you have gout, which is the most arthritis in men. It is not only painful but it can also lead to kidney stones.
3. Discoloured toenails
Women who wears nail polish regularly may often experience a yellowish hue on their toenails which is completely harmless and normal. However, if you are a person who doesn’t wear nail polish that often, it could be a sign of tuberculosis, sinusitis, an inflamed thyroid, or even jaundice caused by an array of liver problems.
4. Tingling feet
Are you experiencing pins and needles or even numbness in your feet? This could be an indicator that you are having circulatory difficulties, or that your peripheral nervous system is damaged. For diabetes patients, tingling sensation in the feet is a sign of nerve damage. But numbness and tingling in the extremities can be an early sign of multiple sclerosis.
5. Swollen feet
If ever your feet suddenly swells up, or if you are experiencing it regularly, it could be a sign of any number of health problems, from poor blood circulation, and deep thrombosis to kidney or liver failure, and blood clots. When you experience such swelling, consult your doctor immediately.
