Cold Hands

Right im not really sure if this belongs on another board as realistically i dont actually know the problem.

Ive noticed that i nearly always have cold hands, particularly in the fingers generally getting colder towards the tips. The only times theyre warm is when i have actually done something like had a shower or maybe had them on the radiator. Gloves dont really seem to do much ether.

I wondered if this is likely to be something like circulation problems? Im a musician playing drums and piano for at least an hour every day (obviously very intense on the hands); is this likely to effect it?

Let me know if you need anymore details..
TIA

Re: Cold Hands

You didn't give us your age. Do you have problems with your bloom pressure? When was the last time you had your thyrhoid levels checked?

Re: Cold Hands

Sounds like Raynaud's Syndrome

Re: Cold Hands

Ok, I'm a teenager with 123 over 77 blood pressure and i don't remember the last time i had my thyroids checked (if i have ever).

Im almost certain its not Raynaud's. I don't suffer from it when i touch something cold and my hands/fingers never change colour even when very cold. It also doesn't tend to come sporadically, it's just generally always there. My hands are just constantly chilled..

Any ideas?

Re: Cold Hands

There's an old saying, "cold hands, warm heart".

Some people just have cold hands, poor circulation or not. I don't think practice could cause it, in fact it probably increases blood flow to your hands. Unless they're painful, numb or change color I wouldn't worry about it healthwise.

As a musician, it could effect you though - cold fingers don't work as well or as fast as warm ones. Get some microwavable hand warmers to use before you play.
