i am a 20 year old male and am currently suffering from cold hands and feet. My cold hands and feet began about 6 months ago while i was surfing one day and they became bright white and numb, which has never happened in my three years of surfing. just lately they are constantly cold, even while/after exercise. When i train (with weights) my muscles feel no "pump" at all and am beggining to beleive these problem might be due to poor blood circulation.

I saw a doctor today and he said he couldnt help me, which is why im posting this thread.

any help would be much appreciated.

  • No clue what is causing your problem but I would try another doctor. You might want to see a cardiologist to make sure it is not a heart issue. At least try another internist and demand a complete physical.

  • There are many things that can cause cold hands and feet. The most obvious is circulatory problems , but I would think that has been looked into. If anything is going on inside an organ the body will supply this organ with blood first and then hands and feet are the first to loose blood supply since they are the furthest away from the heart. This can also happen when pain is present. Like back pain or something... Other then that there is hypothyroidism. But that would cause a whole lot of symptoms. Also there is Raynaulds. You should google that if you haven't read up on it already. Iron or magnesium deficiency can aslo cause cold hands and feet as well as something as simple as stress and fatigue. Hope you find the cause of yours. I have hypothyroidism and understand your problem completely. Kiera
