In brief: Probably not...
If you can get on the computer to ask the question, then you are probably just cold.
Hypothemia will cause decreased mental status and decreased motor skills.

You could become hypothermic by wading in cold water if it was cold enough and you stayed in it for a sufficient duration of time, but this is unlikely
