I have recently been cold in my feet, hands, legs, and in the groin.’it is odd for me because I haven’t expirenced it to this degree before. I’m beginning to expirence a lot of things I haven’t before. I never think it’s anxiety because I always thought that anxiety symptoms present themselves to you all at one time, but I guess that isn’t the case.

Is it normal to feel cold hands and feet, and other extremities?
I would also think that if it’s winter, then it would normal too.

I’m just worried about the worst case scenario, from what seems all the time...

I hope someone out there can assure me that it’s fine to be feeling this.

Welcome to the forum.

Are you taking any medications? The reason I ask is because some meds can cause body heat problems both being to hot or cold.

If it's something that is really bothering you I would go and speak with your GP.

I try not to worry about the future -- so I take each day just one anxiety attack at a time.

Hi AA and welcome!

I have had both hot and cold episodes with anxiety/panic.

One reason may be due to the fact that the SNS, when stressed, will pull blood into the major muscle groups for fight of flight puporses...which would leave the extremities feeling cold.

...and yes, it is common for symptoms to come up in random combos, even at random times...making it hard to deal with due to the unpredictable nature of this condition.
