I have hands and feet that are often really cold in reasonably mild temperature. They hurt if I'm exposed to winter weather, even gloves only help a little bit. What could this be? I've had a friend tell me it might be Raynauds.

I have same problem.  The acupuncturist tells me it is circulation, and yes if you feel pain it can be Raynauds.  Warming foods, the right clothing (scarf around neck etc.), Exercise to get blood moving all help.  
If anyone else has further ideas I'd be interested too.

That's what I thought as well, bad circulation. I did mention it to a doctor once and they didn't seem too concerned.

Rachel do you have plans to have secretor test?

Thyroid problems can also  cause this.

Probably very low down their list of things to worry about, especially as you are young.

Do you get very many Omega 3's? My circulation recently has become much better with making sure to really stay up on Omega 3's (fish, and flax), choline, and Attentia. I think my skin always had poor circulation but Attentia is changing that. My mind is a bit more calm too.

Secretor test will come eventually. Right now I'm focusing on the basics. Just scheduled to give blood a week from today to make sure I'm type A (it was an educated guess more or less). I've wondered about hypothyroidism. Trying to incorporate more fish into my diet, I may have some tonight.

Wait, we don't know you are a Type A? That could change everything.

If I don't keep my thighs or core warm enough, my fingers can get real cold and actually lose circulation to the point it hurts.

When I am super strict with my diet it goes away for me. I would pile on sweaters, run my hands under hot water, that would help for a bit but my icy feet and hands would return. I also would get purple knuckles. Strict adherence is essential for me, unfortunately. Yeah, finding out your definite blood type will help.
My friend has Reynauds (diagnosed with doctor) and they don't exhibit any concern towards it whatsoever. Personally, I don't even tell the doctors my health problems anymore. Yay for me though, as there really isn't much to report these past few months as my diet is taking care of my health concerns.

DoS- No, I don't know for sure that I'm type A. Just everything seems to point to me being one. Excess mucus, body type typical of a Teacher, high levels of stress, strenuous exercise making me feel crappy, etc. My dads a type A and I'm very similar to him. Of course it could all just be in my head but that's what I feel. My moms a type O and I'd be more than happy to be able to eat meat again. And tomatoes

My mother is AB+ secretor, and father is A- (almost 100% sure nonnie). I came out A-, you never know. When I first read descriptions of GTD's I thought I fit hunter.

I'm pretty anxious to get my blood test done at the red cross. I tried two eldoncards at home and managed to mess both of them up

I just got really nervous when doing the test and I guess I mixed it improperly? See my previous post here

Actually when I went to a specialist to have a bump removed from my nose I bled a LOT. That's one thing that made me start questioning my type since O's have thin blood and my mom had told me that she nearly bled to death after having my brother

Right... I would of guessed Type O from the Eldon card, but do it real proper to make sure.

What do you look like? Sometimes it is super obvious what GTD a person is, but unfortunately it isn't that reliable most the time.

Lin and Rachel,
I have had cold hands and feet all of my adult life!
It snowed here last night and was windy today... I went out to make a snowball and holding the snow too long actually hurts my fingers.
Many people I know say they cannot stand wearing socks to bed...I absolutely have to in the winter and late Autumn!
One of my old neighbors had Raynauds and 4 finger amputations to the first or second knuckle. I don't think thats what this is. I believe its poor circulation, also.(Even though I exercise, wear gloves/warm socks, eat warm foods)
Thick blooded A's, perhaps?

I don't think she is a Teacher at all given her eldon card from another post, what she looks like, and what she use to eat.

Cajun,
Definitely does seem like us A blood types have a "coldness issue". The acupuncturist I go to tells me her husband has the same body type, and that some of us just have bodies that tend to run colder/damp etc.  I'm learning some foods do seem to warm up the core of the body better than others.
Ditto on the socks in bed!

Rachel,
Yes you do sound like A blood, but good to confirm.  Red Cross?
I used to have horrible mucus with colds, after going gluten/dairy free this problem went away. On your other post on thyroid, I just responded about adrenals (stress issue).

I also have very cold hands and feet, but hands especially. Whatever the reason, it seems to be out of my control since I am eating and exercising as I should be. It's actually quite annoying and sometimes I can freak someone out by touching them with my hand. I have no thryroid issues but suffer from very dry and cracked hands as well.

Wholefoodie,
Just like you, I shock everyone with my freezing cold hands! They will dry and crack easily so I use superglue.. ..I know, yucky, but its the only way to stop the annoying pain.
My thyroid is fine, I exercise regularly, follow swami with about 90% compliance, yet still have cold hands and feet...mostly in winter but can be year round.
How else can one get circulation going?
Lin, tell us about the warming foods, please? I already drink hot tea and eat hot soup year round.
