Cold intolerance: Could it be that at work you're in a hot environment or that your body temperature rises from physical activity? If this is so, when you enter a cooler environment at home, you feel the difference for awhile. Cold feet means your body is shunting heat away from your extremities into the core of your body. People with anemia or underactive thyroid have cold intolerance.
