    Just wondering if you could help. I'm T2. I have very very hot feet! They constantly tingle and I feel I've got pins in them. I've had my foot check and the nurse says they are fine. I do have very dry feet and hard skin. I'm always hot and feel like I'm melting even when others say it's cold. Wearing a sweater is a dream! Some nights they are so hot I have to sit with my feet in the freezer to cool them down. Every night I have a cool pack that I put my feet under to keep them cold but it doesn't last long. Any ideas or thoughts ?

    Hi @CFinn - something that has sprung to mind to ask you is if you are hyperthyroid? Before I was diagnosed with Graves' disease (a hyperthyroid condition) my feet were boiling all the time, tingly, and very swollen with oedema, and I had night sweats and overwhelming hot flushes.

    Obviously I'm not saying this IS the cause for your hot feet, but it might be worth asking your GP about getting your thyroid checked.

    Hugs.

    Cheers thank you for this. I had a blood test a few days ago and thyroid function was on it so hopefully I'll be able to get to the bottom to if all. Thank you so much xx
