Post Cold hand--singular
Sometimes my husband's hands are both cool to the touch but the right hand is almost always cold. Has anyone else seen [or felt] just one side being cold?

My hubby has Raynaud's - fingers turn white, blue & then red. My 46 year old son has this too. He lives in Florida so it usually only flares up when he comes to Michigan (which is every two weeks).

But that is altogether different than what you are describing, Pat.

Pat,
I have this same problem. I am right-handed and my right hand is always colder than my left. I attribute it to the fact that my right hand is always touching things (the mouse, the TV remote, the water glass, etc) and some of those things are cold.

He is left-handed.

Yes - my dad had that sometimes, one cold hand one hot one. A few weeks before he died his arms were freezing sometimes but his hands were hot. Then his feet got really hot. Usually his whole body has been cold for about the last 8 or 10 years but the last few weeks his thermostat seemed to be all over the place in all different body parts. Lynn
