Now with the arrival of winter, I am experiencing constant cold hands and feet. What can I do to warm up and stay warmed up? I'm feeling that my immune system is compromised as I'm shivering & chilly most of the time.
Is there a chance you could be anemic?
Have you had your thyroid checked? One of the symptoms of hypothyroidism is being cold ( some others are weight gain, dry skin, thinning hair.
To help stay warm, dress in layers. I have Raynauds, so keeping my hands and feet warm and dry is a must. I wear wool socks in winter...gloves with mittens over. And I exercise to keep blood flowing to extremeties.
Not menopause, as I'm only 33 years old. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll check my blood and thyroid. Also, my cousin suggested that I take a hot water bottle with me and place it on my feet. I think I'll try this and see what happens.
I have the same problem. I lost 35 pounds in the last 8 months, thought it might be due to that. I also think I have a pinched nerve in my neck and someone said that could cause it, too. I also drink a lot of caffeine and smoke, so I'm kind of a mess. I am working on redicing everything, because this is painful. it's very annoying to have cold hands and feet when it's 70 degrees.
