Most people feel warmed up after exercising, but sometimes it can give you cold feet. A look at the symptoms and causes may help to identify the problem. Symptoms include numbness, tingling, and sensitivity to touch. Causes include compressed nerves, socks or footwear that cuts off the circulation to the feet and toes, and trauma from colliding with a hard object. In addition, cold feet may be the result of fractures, bone spurs, joint swelling, and cysts. Treatment can begin with checking footwear, including both shoes and socks, to see if they are somehow affecting your feet. It’s also a good idea to improve arch support, which takes the pressure off the bottom of your feet. A third option is to vary the types of exercises you do to include less stressful ones that give your feet a rest. It is wise to consult a podiatrist if the sensation of cold feet after exercise continues or becomes worse. It might be an indication of a more serious condition, such as peripheral artery disease. After an examination and diagnosis, a podiatrist can offer treatment options, including medication, custom orthotics, and guidance on appropriate footwear for your situation.
