Default cold hands...ice cold

I have always been very comfortable with the cooler weather. Wear a sweater or sweat shirt when others are wearing coats. Lately my hands just won't warm up. They are always freezing cold. I made myself a pr of fingerless mittens to keep on while in doors. This is also making my knitting and playing cards a lot harder, keep droping knitting needles.... not too happy with this new symptom.... How many have this problem? L

My hands get cold more often now and are harder to warm up. Pretty hard to type with mittens on. I had a friend knit me thumbless mittens too. Easier to get on curled up fingers.

My hands are always like ice, indoor or out. My wife walks around bare foot and I have a winter jacket and blanket. She is hot and I am freezing. Yes, a lot of people with ALS have this problem.
