Yes I do all the time, and I have thyroid disease. I would see a doctor, this can be a sign of many different things depending on symptoms.

Mrs_Amanda:  I’m usually slightly chilly and my toes/fingers are always completely freezing (sometimes they turn blue!) Does this happen to you as well? My mom always told me it was circulation and no big deal.

I live in NC and I love the hot humid summers here, but everyone else thinks I’m crazy.  My perfect temp is actually around 80+ degrees, but I grew up in Taiwan and southern CA.  I will get cold if it’s less than 75 degrees and I always have a jacket/coat with me just in case.  The other thing I’ve noticed is it’s super difficult for me to warm up after I get cold (I pretty much need a hot bath or shower to get toasty again).  I’m not sure if I need to see a doctor, but it’s good to know I’m not the only one lol.

I am always cold too! I will touch my DH’s hands and his are nice and warm where mine usually feel cool.

yes….my hands and feet always. Turns out it was because I was anaemic and iron supplements have helped. It may not be the same situation for you though as there are other issues that could have the same symptoms. I suggest going to your doctor for tests.

Yes! And alleycat1984 is right you need to get your thyroid checked as it’s a sign of hypothyroidism!

if your hands or feet turn blue it’s a sign of Raynaud’s disease

Mrs_Amanda:  Sometimes my nose gets frigid too. It’s seriously annoying in the winter. Fingers, toes and nose all get very, very cold. Mostly my toes turn blue and my fingers are just always freezing. I have always had this happen since I was a little kid so I forget to mention it to the Doc. I totally should though, just in case.

I’m pretty thin and am usually cold, especially my feet. In cars, at work, movie theater, restaurants… But not when it’s 80 degrees out, unless the air conditioning is on high. You could try taking iron supplements, anemia is fairly common.

Mrs_Amanda:  Yes, but I’ve had my thyroid tested and it’s fine. It’s probably a good idea to check, but it could also be just how you are.

I think part of it for me is that I grew up in the South and now I live in the frozen tundra. People here are used to it. I’ve been here 9 years and I’m not even close to used to it. My DH acts like he’s going to sweat to death whenever we’re in the heat.  Whenever I’m cold, he’s comfortable. Whenever I’m comfortable, he’s dying of heat. There’s no winning.

Oh yeah.  I’ll usually wear a jacket even when it’s in the 70’s out.  It also doesn’t help that I work in a basement with no windows and broken heat/AC (it’s probably like 65 degrees in here and the maintenance guys haven’t come out yet to look at the issue).  Recently, it was 72 degrees out and I turned the heater on in my car.  When my FI drove the car later and saw that the heat was on, he was like WTF?!

Oh yeah. Always!  People give me a hard time for it, but it’s just how I am.<br />

I’m always cold too. I think a lot of it just has to do with the fact that I’ve always lived in Florida and can’t take the cold at all. At home I am always under a blanket if I am just sitting around. I bring sweaters everywhere too, and normally put them on whenever I get inside. I do get really hot outside in the sumer, but after a few minutes in the AC I want to be under a blanket again.

My hands and feet are also usually really cold. I’ve just always been this way.
