Annoying, but not serious

These conditions are sometimes technically called neurocirculatory disorders and their diagnosis can be difficult. This is a malfunction of the nerves that control the width of blood vessels. Nervous regulation of vascular lumen serves physiologically affecting body temperature. In cold conditions, the vessel narrows due to saving of body heat in the heat expands the contrary, to avoid overheating. In affected individuals, the reactivity of vessels is increased, which causes the above-mentioned feeling of cold extremities. Vessels to cold stimuli react more sensitively and their narrowing occurs at higher temperatures than normal. In addition to changes in ambient temperature may be a precipitating factor also stress and mental strain.
