Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you posting your query on ATD.
Coldness and sleepy feet can be due to one of the many reasons particularly in this age.
The possibilities are
1. Sitting for more hours
2. Peripheral neuritis leading to loss of sensation
3. Reduced blood supply to the feet due to hardening of arteries.
4. Presence of diabetes, hypertension and persons on medicines for chronic disorder
5. vitamin B 12 deficiency.
6. Ageing
You are advised to consult your doctor for assessment.
