Mild fever but freezing hands and feet, what is this?

Mild fever but freezing hands: Raynaud's phenomenon occurs when cold, emotional stress, or other exposure causes small arteries in the body to tighten, decreasing blood supply to those areas.

It is known for causing "red, white, and blue" skin discolorations, as the blood vessels narrow and then dilate. Staying warm, decreasing stress, and other lifestyle changes usually clear it up. Raynaud's is more serious when caused by a connective tissue disease such as s Rheumatic fever symptoms may vary. Some people may have several symptoms, while others experience only a few.

My hands are freezing and feet also, my echocardiogram went from EF 64% to EF 55% does this has something to do with it?

ECHOcardiogram: EF on echo is very technique dependent so the difference in these two values is not a big deal unless the decrement continues in the future.
