Raynaud's?: You can take Niacin no flush capsules. See if nicotine or caffeine productives may be causing this problem. Most important to determine any underlying organic causes such as vasospastic disorders or liver disorders, etc.

Cold feet: Circulatory problems are the most common culprit for cold feet. Blood must travel a long way to get from the heart to your feet, and there could be many factors causing it arrive more slowly (or with less volume). If you are a smoker, this is one of the largest factors. It could also be caused from the way you are sitting if it is for a prolonged period of time. Or just wear thicker socks.
