Feet are always cold

Dear Doctor,

I have noticed that my feet are always cold even when the weather is warm and the rest of my body feels fine. Is this is normal? Is there anything I can do to prevent it?

Thanks!

    Hello and thank you for your question.

    When I have a patient complaining about cold fingers and toes I want to ensure that the circulation is adequate. There is a condition called Raynaud’s Phenomenon which is a vasospasm of the smallest blood vessels in the fingers and toes. Temperature changes, smoking and even stress can cause constriction to the small blood vessels. I recommend seeing a Podiatrist or a Vascular Doctor as they can better asses if it is in fact related to your circulation.

    Good luck!
