Since you are in good health, I don’t think you need to be worried about your symptoms. The nose usually gets colder than the rest of the body because it takes longer for blood to circulate to this area. So it doesn’t necessarily mean that there is something wrong with your circulation. This can also happen with the hands and feet again because it takes longer for the blood to reach them compared to rest of the body.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
