When you keep getting cold feet, consult the doctor right away. Since your feet are the farthest from your heart, they are usually among the first body parts to show signs of the disease. In the case of Raynaud’s disease, blood has difficulty getting through to the toes, hands, ears, and nose because of the tightening of the vessels.
