Could be: Thyroid disorders can cause several issues, including but not limited to cold or heat intolerance, etc. Other conditions, unrelated to thyroid can be a causative factor such as raynaud's syndrome, where a person can get cold feet and even cold hands at times. If the symptoms cause a major problem in your life, seek an evaluation for possible causes, as there can be tx to help. Best wishes.
