    See a doctor just to be safe, my little sister has something called Raynards syndrome that gives her cold hands and feet all the time.

    Hello there,

    I also had the same problem. Turns out cold hands and feet are a common symptom of an iron deficiency and as it turns out, I am indeed iron deficient.

    Perhaps you should check out this link to iron deficiency and see if you have any other symptoms in the list.

    Could be just poor circulation, or could be Raynauds syndrome. Might be worth getting checked if it's bothering you

    I'm the same except it's mainly my feet instead of my hands, though I do still get with my hands. I got told it was Raynaud's. Apparently its very common in women. I mostly notice it when I am going in a bath and my feet and hands go bright white instead of red and it takes them ages to register the heat. I also get it throughout the day and especially at night in bed too and even with multiple socks on, my feet still feel like blocks of ice.

    My mum thinks I might have this. I'm always getting told I have cold hands. Sometimes they go a weird shade of purple! The most annoying this is my toes tend to swell up and become sore and really itchy

    Raynauds is a possibility and perhaps a thyroid issue? A blood test would help
