Our expert says:
Your extremities are being effected by the cold. Blood flow is restricted and hence the symptoms. It is imperative that you keep your extremities warm and if you are a smoker, you should stop. You should however, consult your doctor for an examination. I think that you might have a condition called Reynauds Syndrome or Phenomena. Please refer to the following link for more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reynaud%27s_phenomenon
