I see

are you able to exercise? regular exercise can help your circulation improve

if the cold fingers are painful, you should see a doctor about them

there are medical tests like angiograms and doppler ultrasounds which can check for circulation

some patients can have blood vessel spasms in their arms and fingers which can cause them to be cold, especially when exposed to cold weather.

I do exercise. It is not painful. It sounds like one hand has better circulation than the other. I can have is checked at my next full physical.

that is good you are exercising

and that is good the coldness is not painful

one hand could have better circulation than the other

your doctor can order some testing for you on this

increasing your stretching, yoga, flexibility could help improve your circulation

continuing to exercise can help as well

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
