I am having strange symptoms. Anytime I'm cool to cold, the right hand and foot (and now lower leg and lower arm) are WAY colder than the left. For example, I may have chill bumps on the right nut not the left. This happens when I'm fully clothed with warm clothes on. This is more common when sitting than when lying down. If I get up and exert energy and really warm up, it seems to even out. I do not have tingling, numbness or anything like that, just coldness. My husband can feel a wide variance between the temperatures of the right and left sides of my body when I'm like this - which is pretty much daily.
I saw a doc today and am going for basic labs tomorrow (lipids, thyroid, cbc, urine, etc.) but he was thinking maybe this is a thyroid issue. I was thinking circulatory. (my fingernails resume natural color within 2 sec. of being pressed white, though).
I really don't have many other symptoms, just the coldness on my right side.
I appreciate any ideas, especially things to ask my doc about.
