My toes are killing me!!
#1
Ever since it has got cold again and i get the occasional cold toes during rides, my toes have ben bloody killing me, mainly the big toe + 2nd and 3rd on both feet and are really red and swollen and hurt to touch, and occasionally get really itchy too. Someone said last year it could be chilblains, but how the hell do you get rid of it? They only get cold for about an hour max during evening rides, and during the day i've been wearing my stupidly warm snow boots i got in Canada a few years ago. It's driving me nuts, and i'm worried about it affecting my ski-ing in a few weeks time!

You need room to move. Thick socks won't do anything for you if there is no room for your toes to move as there will be no circulation. If your shoes are tight then wear the thinnest socks you have, sounds illogical but you will be a lot warmer

No don't think it's that as Raynauds is caused by stress and anxiety, and despite being constantly p!ssed off about having no money and a crap job, i am neither stressed or anxious about anything. It's not due to shoes being too tight either as both my SPD's and work shoes are fairly spacious, and socks aren't too thick.  It only manifests itself after i get cold feet, and i never stick them strait under a hot tap or have a shower as soon as i get back (always sort bike out first) which is apparently the main cause of chilblains, so i am at a loss Undecided

Lol thanks, i'll do that right away.

Anyone know if your feet getting too hot could cause the same symptoms? As I said I've been wearing my Salomon snow boots recently since its gotten really cold as I was getting cold feet in my work shoes and by the end of the day my socks are soaking wet sometimes.
