Doctor can evaluate: Feeling cold may be related to some hormonal changes that lead to a lower metabolic rate and lower body temperature, or that lead to less blood flow to the skin (or to the hands and feet). These changes can make a person feel like she is colder. A primary care doctor can evaluate and also refer to an endocrinologist if needed.
