Hi,i am 20 year old female and since about the age of 15 i have been aware of strange symptoms in my hands. Firstly they tend to be either very cold or quite sweaty. When i am warm or go from a cold to warm environment, they tend to sweat profusely. At the moment the hand i am using to type is ice cold whilst the other in my pocket is sweating.

dry skin? losing weight? gaining weight? puffy eyelids? tremoring hands (even when you're not cold)? How often does this happen? At a particular time during the day? Was it sudden onset, or has it been going on for awhile? Feel better soon!
Thank you so much for your help :) I will definatley take this issue up. I guess I never really mentioned to the Doctor because I assumed it was kinda normal. It wasn't till I shook hands with someone ("Woah! Your hands are like ice!") and asked a few questions ("Are your hands always cold?" "No") that I thought something was off. Thank you again.
I'm trying to gain weight, weigh 105 & 5'7". Only symptoms are joint muscle pain, memory loss, tingling in both hands & get cold easy. I do have 2 pinched nerves in my neck though. I eat very healthy & am pretty active. Wasn't using iodizes salt for a long time, but I am now.
the specialist thinks that my weight gain (10 kg, 22 lbs) tiredness, tingling and pain in hands and feet, feeling cold, pain in jaw and neck and ear, hair and eyebrow loss, dry skin and general being is due to anxiety problems? huh? can blood tests still come back normal and display underactive symptons. he did not tell me my levels, but just said that they were normal. i know that this is not in my head and i am not making this up because they are real. any advice for what to do?
I was very sick with every symptom of thyroid. Cold hands, cold feet, even in the summer. Severe body body pains. Severe fatigue. with colitis. Dr. decided to treat my thyroid. Even though my numbers were not horrible. I was on the low end of normal. He said my thyroid needed improvement. When we gradually worked up my thyroid medication up to 100 mcg it made me very mean feeling, grumpy. It made my insomnia worse. My FT4 and T3 went high. All of a sudden my TSH went 0.1.
Be careful with thyroid and make sure her Doc doesn't change her thyroid meds without running consecutive tests on he thryroid levels. I've been through hell and back this past year with my mother and her thyroid. She began having memory loss slowly but in Jan '08 she started getting confused, had auditory psychosis, severe memory loss, depressed and we lived with it sad day after sad day. Psychiatrists and Dr's told us it was most likely the beginning of Alzheimer's.
I have some many weird problems but don't know if they are all related. My hand tingle and seem be always cold, my hair has been falling out, hive on my feet and ankles, puffy face and hands, tired but can't seem to get a good nights sleep. Do you think all this is related to thyroid?

a slightly slow pulse (50-55 at rest), cold hands, slow thinking, trouble thinking, feeling out of it (etc), as well as this odd breathless feeling that I get on and off...at rest or when active, but not worse when active...it's just on it's own. I have never had any of these symptoms independent of the others on the list. THey are all or nothing.
shortness of breath. feeling extreem cold in hands feet and inside especially after eating something. she is eating very little. It seems something is sucking the life out of her, she is always tired. Doctors are very vague. they take tests but don't seem to know what to do. Doctor doesn't want her in hospital for fear of hospital infections. My Sister is in Scotland Fife Markinch. Mother is nursing her. is there a specialist we can call.
Hi! Cold peripheries or cold hands and feet can happen due to peripheral vascular disease or disorder of the circulatory system outside of the brain and heart. Other causes of cold extremities are hypothyroidism, eating disorders like anorexia, Vit B12 deficiency, Addison’s disease, adrenal causes like pheochromocytoma, anemia, Buerger’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome and Raynaud’s disease.
So, yesterday I had an episode, and my hands were cold. I took an Ativan, and as soon as I felt well enough to do anything else than pace back and forth across the hallway repetitively, I decided to take the temperature of my hands with a very good temperature scanner (exergen). The temperature of my hands were only a few degrees warmer than body ambient temperature at about 75 degrees Fahrenheit. This reading is no mistake as I took it about a dozen times.
what may be causing my hands to feel cold, but a burning sensation if i touch them. with a pins and needles feeling.
) However, as shown in Table 4, if you have a problem with your thyroid, that problem could make you more likely to develop a change in thyroid function if you take in too much iodine in your diet or in other ways. That would be true, for example, if you ever had hyperthyroidism due to a generalized overactivity of your thyroid gland (diffuse toxic goiter or Graves' disease) or if you have a low-grade inflammation of your thyroid known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis (Hashimoto's disease).
Check with your doctor are your hands cold/hot to touch? not to be a smarty pants - but it is freezing outside.
HelLo There.. I wanted to ask about my hands problem! My hands have 2 bad situations & i don't like both! The 1st : It's too cold most the time! the 2nd : it's sweat when i hold someone's hand or even when i grab something! I feel shy from that.. & I don't know how to stop it or make it better! Can i have some help with that?
I have noticed very, very fine tremors in my fingers since starting treatment. No one else would notice it because it is so minimal and the tremors are so fine. I notice it if I hold my hands out straght or am trying to do something intricate, like thread a needle. My thyroid is okay (checked monthly). That does not mean your mom's thryroid is okay and, as Will posted, tremors are a symptom of hyperthyroidism and a blood test would confirm it or rule it out as a possible cause.
