Consistantly cold hands/feet

No matter what quality glove or boot I wear in cold weather, my hands and feet get extremely cold, in cold weather. So much so that the area under my finger nails will turn a shade of purple.

So this is something that I've dealt with for as long as I can remember; but became a "real" issue back in the woods at the Benning School for Wayward Boys. At one point it got noticed somehow by a Drill Sergeant; and he sent me to the medics to get it looked at for a cold weather "injury". Not to mention having a bit of fun at the color my hand had changed too... :D

Fast forward to a few weeks ago when someone I was speaking with mentioned some "disorder" (God I hate that word) that his wife has, where her extremities become very cold.

I always just thought that this was just normal for me. Is there a defined "cause" of this? I guess that there is nothing that can be done about it; but if knowing that there is a defined issue, perhaps there is something that I can do to work with it.

Does this sound familiar?
