Arterial disease: The sensation of cold on the hands and feet may signify the development of a condition called raynaud's phenomenon, a small vessel arterial disease characterized by an interruption in the blood flow to fingers and toes (and sometimes nose and ears), due to spasms in the blood vessels. If its not raynaud's, then a more definitive exam is needed.

Cold spot: If it feels cold to touch then there is decreased blood flow to the skin in that area. If it feels cold but when you touch the area with your finger it is the same temperature as the adjacent skin then you have a nerve issue.
