I'm sooo cold...! 53 yrs old; been to 3 different Rheumatologists over the past 8 years; lots of symptoms but none add up to a specific diagnosis. For 3+ years I'm having BRIGHT RED cold hands, esp. in cooler weather - but I do not seem to have the typical white/blue/to red Raynauds-type symptoms. All over cold body temps, cold skin all over, and cold feet. My hands hurt and are embarrassing. Sometimes my face get very red but is not as chronic as my hands. People ask me what is wrong with my hands and I get side glances when my face is bright red. I rarely go out and I'm an "outgoing" person! (pun intended). I have occasional blue/purple blotching on arms and legs too. Question: WHAT KIND OF DOCTOR should I see? Could the hands be a circulation problem? Thank you for any ideas or direction you can provide!- Suzi
