Does anyone have such cold hands they are painful?

I'm assuming you've had weight loss surgery in answering your question. From having WLS and a significant weight loss, changes in metabolism occur. Possible causes of being cold (not limited to only hands) can be an indication of nutritional deficiencies, especially during the first six months post-op. Post-ops lose the fat stores that normally insulates us from cold temperatures. How are your lab results? Are you on a daily vitamin regime? Iron deficiencies can cause us to be cold. If your hands feel numb or have the "pins and needles" feeling, that can be a B12 issue. Call your bariatric surgeon's office to describe what you're experiencing and to see if you need follow-up blood tests done. It is best to check to make sure by checking in with your surgeon.
