I don't know why, but I am always cold. Even as I'm sitting here, the temperature is 70 degrees and I'm wearing a coat underneath the blanket I'm wrapped up in and I'm still freezing!

If I eat anything cold, even drinking cold tap water, I will begin to freeze. My feet, hands, and nose are always ice cold. My fingernail beds turn purple and/or white and my hands get all splotchy. My upper arms randomly get cold, and sometimes I get a freezing/tingling sensation in my back. I don't smoke and I don't have a thyroid problem. I had my doctor check it last year after I randomly lost 40 pounds (I was always cold prior to losing the weight as well). I should have plenty of muscle mass to keep me warm because I'm an active person. I never sweat no matter how hard I exercise, and if I do, its not very much and it usually makes me cold and clammy. I freeze when I take my clothes off. I have a hard time getting my body temperature up after I get wet. Even if it's just the bottoms of my pants from walking in puddles, it still effects my whole body temperature. No matter what the temperature is outside, even if it's 97 degrees, if there is even a slight breeze, I am cold.

Any ideas? Do you think its low body temperature? A nerve problem? Poor circulation? Any help would be great!
