My hands arealways cold & now my knuckles are blue, what does this mean? Do I have to go to the hospital? Almost always cold

My hands arealways cold & now my knuckles are blue, what does this mean? Do I have to go to the hospital? Almost always cold

I'm : I'm going to answer assuming that this is a bother rather than an emergency. It's usually easy to tell the difference. There is a range of response to cold. We all protect our core temperature (our brain, heart, lungs, etc.) by reducing the circulation to our hands. Some of us do this better than others. At the far end of the spectrum, people reduce there circulation so well that it is referred to as raynaud's phenomenon. A doctor can check to be sure there is no underlying problem, but most people with this issue are healthy. In fact, as a person who gets cold, mottled hands in the cold, i can tell you that the line between normal and disease can often be difficult to draw here. ...Read more

Cold hands and feet: Most often these occur because of over-reactivity of the blood vessels in your hands and feet.

My hands are always cold and blue. Could it be due to a blocked artery?

Possibly: Cold and blue hands could definitely be due to a vascular problem. The three possibilities would be, 1) a blocked large artery of the arm, 2) a blocked vein in the arm causing venous congestion (blue color and swelling), or 3) a vasospastic condition of the hand called raynaud's phenomenon. Either way, the best test is an ultrasound. See someone urgently if you are having pain. ...Read more

I live healthy life style and i cut out sugar but my hands is always cold what is the reason for that?

I live healthy life style and i cut out sugar but my hands is always cold what is the reason for that?

Cold hands: Cold hands would not have anything to do with your sugar. Some folks, especially young ones, do complain of cold extremities despite good circulation. I suspect the nerves that supply your arteries work chaotically (dystonia) causing your arteries to dilate and compress randomly. The best example of it would be migraine headaches. Hormones play a vital role in that too. May get better over time. ...Read more
