Why are my feet always cold?

Asked by rodydoe89 (356points) October 10th, 2010

My feet are always cold. Even if I wear socks or house shoes or both, they’re always cold. Why? Does it mean something bad about my health?

The can be many reasons. One is low blood pressure.

My mom has always had low blood pressure her entire life. The doctors always joke with her that it is so low she might as well be dead. But I’ve never had a problem with my blood pressure, at least to my knowledge anyway. Every time I’ve been to the doctor it’s been normal.

Have you had a physical lately? cold feet is a sure sign of poor blood circulation.

Call your doctor and schedule a visit.

If you are a long time smoker, this affects your circulation.

Could also be hormonal imbalance which also leads to magnesium deficiency.

Circulation is my first guess.

My fridged feet were due to Raynaud’s Phenomenon. Since I’ve started running I have no problems with cold hands or feet.

Are they sweaty a lot? I have hyperhidrosis with my feet that causes them to always sweat thus always be wet thus always be cold. It sucks.

A low-functioning thyroid also sometimes causes extremities to be cold. You might want to have that checked.

@rodydoe89 – Doctor visits increase excitement, which often raises blood pressure as well. Your real blood pressure could be much lower.
