Anxiety?: Or fear... Could be causes for cold and sweaty extremities among other possibilities such as medication side-effects, some metabolic disorders, etc. Taking out of context, it is difficult to give you an answer. The best way for you to know, would be to consult your family physician. Best wishes!
