Long time sufferer here.

I find I sweat like Rik Mayall while running, but my hands are white in the 10 mins it takes to drive home. Can take best part of an hour, including hot tea and a shower to warm up again.

Changes in temps on a warm day are a nightmare, peeling potatoes, carrots or handling 'wet' food even while wearing marigold type gloves will set it off.

My feet aren't affected. They can be numb with cold and wet, but as soon as I am out of the immediate wet, they warm up quite quickly and are fine.

I got on Nifepedine 10mg time release, worked great and no effect on BP.

I found I suffered from this, or something similar, and buying thermal long Johns (has made a massive difference as it was always my legs that suffered, particularly when wearing jeans. Feel so much better for it.

Dressing from top to toe in merino seems to do the trick for me. I also use circulation boosting herbs and spices.
Biggest thing for me was being told to keep my head warm!!! A woolly hat or merino beany and now I rarely have cold hands and feet! Used to be a nightmare in the shops! So cold...

Yes, I find keeping the rest of my body warm prevents more problems with my hands than trying to keep my hands warm.

The thermal ankle high slippers someone got me a few years ago are essential, they’re never off my feet. I can have just a t shirt on but still need them.

I bought ankle high felt slippers last year. They are amazing! You wear them barefoot and they keep me toasty warm.
Also, I swear by my merino extra long buff and hoodies! When I feel my hands go cold, I put the hood up and temperature rises :)
