Narrow veins and arteries


Q: Cant find the proper category for this. My body, especially my hands and feet, can become so cold (always during winter) that I turn blue. As if Im dead. A pharmacist once prescribed nicotimide, but it didnt help bring my body temperature back up to normal. I just felt a searing heat sensation flooding through from my torso to my ears for a minute, then nothing after that. Winter here isnt even cold. Half the season consists of warm days. My body on the other hand goes into freak mode and pretends to be dead. Please help before I solve the problem by jumping into fire.

Symptoms:  slow blood circulation, abnormal body temperature, numbness when bending arms and legs and sitting and laying too long in one position
