Few things

Carpal_tunnel_syndrome
It could simply be pain due to writing too much or gripping the pen too hard. Other possibilities includes tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and arthritis (usually osteoarthritis). These are not generally not hard to diagnose. Start with your primary care physician. If no help, see a rheumatologist.

what does it mean when your hands peel??

Many Possibilities

Fingers
Hand peeling can be caused by several different conditions, from fungal infection to eczema to calluses or warts. If it is the whole hand, it definitely needs to be checked out by a physician (primary care or dermatology). If it's a small area, you can try a moisturizing lotion or even a small amount of hydrocortisone cream. If that makes it worse, see a doctor.

what does it mean when your hands are always cold?

Primary Raynaud's ?

Extremity-upper-hand
When someone has cold hands without other significant joint or skin problems it is most likely Primary Raynaud's; the arteries to the hands constrict, making them colder than the reset of the body, and it is worse in colder weather. Without other significant health complaints this is a benign diagnosis.

What does it mean when your hands feet are always cold?

Can be circulation.

Hypothyroidism
This can be due to circulation difficulty, or it might be a symptom of hypothyroidism or vasculitis. There are vasospastic disorders, like Raynaud's phenominon, that are triggered by cold exposure, with blanching, cyanosis, and redness, so the extremities must be kept warm. 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.

what does it mean when your hands and feet are always cold?

Normal or abnormal!

Blood
The body maintains temperature by limiting blood flow to skin of the extremities to avoid heat loss. When this reflex is exaggerated, cold hands and cold feet may occur in otherwise healthy person. Medication such as beta blockers can also cause cold hands and cold feet. Poor circulation, as can occur with congestive heart failure can also cause cold hands and cold feet.
