This could be from anaemia or a thyroid disorder or circulatory problems related to diabetes, high cholesterol or many various other disorders.
You said you had Reynaud's syndrome which will certainly result in your extremities feeling cold. Try to keep your feet warm, and legs, as these are the most commonly affected areas. It also can affect fingers, nose and ears. Keeping active is good too.
I know nothing about the medical issues mentioned here but I learned when I came to Vermont and was exposed to real winter weather that your feet and hands get colder when you do not wear a hat. I sometimes work at the computer with a hat on. Hands and feet stay warmer. Without the hat they turn to ice after an hour of sitting.
Also check the house for draughts. I need to get a draught 'snake' for the front door - I've never noticed it before, but it's been so cold the last few weeks that it feels like the cold air is gusting in sometimes! And it makes the entire house cold.
When I sit working at the computer, I never notice that I'm cold but as soon as I stop and go to make myself a cup of tea, I start to shiver. Why do you think that is?Karen, keep drinking hot drinks. It will warm you from within. Alcohol apparently does not warm you up.
