Hello @leomburk, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Sorry to hear your toes feel like they are freezing. Can I ask how long it has been since your bilateral knee replacements and when you first noticed your toes being cold? Is it just the toes or also the feet themselves?

@johnbishop , my toes & feet always feel cold so, even living in San. Florida, I wear socks. I was diagnosed with severe neuropathy w/ pain due to a compressed nerve in my neck. It got really unbearable after my left knee replacement followed by a severely broken ankle & broken bones on the top of my foot.

@cb772, You mentioned a compressed nerve in your neck. Have you thought about looking into Myofascial Release Therapy? There is another discussion started by @jenniferhunter that you may find helpful to relieve the pain.
