I have ZERO tolerance for particular temps,if its under 75 degrees my feet turn blood red,legs are numb and painful, my hands turn white(NOT RAYNAUDS) and I cant even tolerate the grocery store because its LITERALLY painful. What can cause this?

In brief: Cold intolerance

This is unusually severe cold intolerance.
I recommend getting tested for underactive thyroid and anemia. Less common causes would be taking beta blockers or anticoagulants or being very underweight. A rare cause is a disorder of a part of the brain called the hypothalamus.
