Raynaud's Syndrome: What you describe is consistent with raynauds phenomenon, which is a vascular over-reactivity where arteries clamp down in the extremities, causing cold hands and/or feet, sometimes even with fingers and toes turning blue or white or red. It can exist by itself or it can be associated with other diseases, like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. You should talk to your medical provider about it.
