    I have really cold fingers and hands. I went to the doctor to see him about some lumps on my fingers and he said they are caused by the cold. SO what can I do to keep my hands warm? I wear gloves but they don't do much at all, or is it just because they are crappy gloves?

    Do you have good hands because it's cold and you're not wearing enough clothes...or are you one of those people (like me) who have cold hands and feet pretty much all through the year, even in summer?

    If it's the latter, then you probably have a very poor circulation & metabolic rate, and if you're anaemic that could also be one of the reason. Low blood pressure can also cause it because the oxygen is not reaching your hands/feet...which is pretty much also me. :rolleyes:

    Maybe you should go to your GP and have a check on your blood pressure etc if it's the latter.

    I don't usually have cold hands(I never noticed until now). I had a blood test yesterday so I guess I should know what's wrong with me soon.

    ginger helps the circultion if you think that may be a problem.... I eat loads of ginger nut biscuits in winter to help (it's also great for sea sickness!)

    You can also eat crystallized ginger if you can get over the unusual flavour.

    I have poor circulation too, and probably low blood pressure. Not much I can do...

    I love people with cold hands. It's a great excuse to hold hands, read palms, tickle, etc

    I have rayndauds disease so have to keep my hands and feet warm most of the time (but not so much at this time of year).

    In the winter I buy heat pads and put them inside my gloves, which can fend off attacks. But not always.

    For my feet - well, just 2/3 pairs of socks. I've just been having an attack in my right foot and it was bloody agony, it's wearing off now though. I don't know what caused it really, I rarely get attacks at this time of year.

    My hands sweat inexplicably and profusely in summer. It is very frustrating when a girl wants to get close with one!

    Eek, I usually have cold hands and feet, but I think it's because I crack my knuckles and toes so often. I usually go to bed with a hot water bottle every night - my hands usually warm up, but my feet and toes don't.

    why would cracking your knuckles have anything to do with cold hands and feet? :confused:

    i crack them...but i have been having cold hands and feet since i was small...YEARS before i even knew how to crack a knuckle.

    I have Reynauds Disease also, and it's a pain in the rear.

    All I can say is wrap up warm, not that it ever helps...

    I even have to wear mittens in the summer. How much do I suck?

    I also have cold hands most of the time but havent been to the doc about it, what do they give for Reynauds disease? If its a problem with circulation wearing gloves isnt going to help much.

    Not an awful lot, to be honest. They reccommend a lot of things, from wearing gloves to taking ginger tablets. Nothing seems to work, though.
