If U have atherosclerosis affecting major blood vessels, Atenolo decreases blood flow to areas affected, esp distal extremities. Why do U take Atenolol & what other meds taken. Atherosclerosis comes esp from Diabetes, HTN, High Cholesterol, Smoking. Atenolol does not affect brain signif, but low blood flow can.

What could cause cold hands and feet after a surgical procedure and general anesthesia?

Cold after surgery: Normally surgery rooms are kept quite cold and under anesthesia, as there is no movement in the body + there is exposure for surgery etc, the body temperature drops and patients get cold after the surgery esp in extremities. Most modern operation rooms do have warm air covers over patients to maintain normal body temperature + they also use heated IV fluids and humidified anesthetic gases

Can vitamin b deficiency cause cold hands and feet?

Can vitamin b deficiency cause cold hands and feet?

Cold feet & vit B12: Cold feet (and hands) is often a condition where the blood flow is impaired due to overconstriction of the capillaries by the sympathetic nervous system. This occurs because of the overactivity of the sympathetic nerves which effect the constriction. Vitamin b (b6, b12) deficiency needs to be corrected, but keeping hands & feet warm is also important. Long term tx requires a medical professional.

NO: Potassium levels (neither high nor low) do not cause cold feet or hands. Your symptoms cannot be determined with the information supplied. Ambient temperature, activity, insulation, state of hydration all play a role. Thyroid hormone level can be a factor. Raynaud's phenomenon is a disorder in which hands and feet blanch and become cyanotic, numb, tingly, or painful when exposed to cold.

Why do I have cold hands and feet indoors?

Cold feet and hands: Pernio is caused by exposure to cold for a long period of time without freezing or by very wet conditions. Raynauds syndrome is an abnormal narrowing of the blood vessels with cooling of the fingers or toes. Cryoglobulins are proteins, which are normally dissolved in the blood, that become solids or gels when cold. These are some causes of cold hands and feet.
