This is annoying, so I have to ask. My fingers and toes are always cold no matter how hot it is. What is wrong with me?

Can be circulation.: This can be due to circulation difficulty, or it might be a symptom of hypothyroidism or vasculitis.

It would be a good idea to keep your feet warm anyway. It would be wise at this point to see your doctor and get tested. ...Read more
I have a weird condition where at times, some of my fingers are cold and the other fingers are warm. What does that mean?
?Raynaud's: We need more information and a physician will need to assess you in person. If its persistent and your fingers are particularly sensitive to extremes of temperature, I would see a vascular specialist to check circulation.
