Cold Hands In Ac Room?
I want to ask this, why do my hands and feet feel so cold in the ac room, even though my friend is normal, and sometimes my nails turn pale when in the ac room, what is the cause, is it dangerous?
Humans have their respective responses to cold temperatures so it cannot be compared between you and your friends when you are in an air-conditioned room. Some people may be able to adapt easily to cold temperatures, but others may not be able to tolerate cold and when exposed to cold temperatures their bodies easily become cold.
Actually, if the AC temperature is quite low, then it's only natural that your hands and feet feel cold. However, there are several other things that can affect someone who cannot stand the cold, including:
Lack of calories and fat
Body condition is not fit, for example having a fever
Disorders of the body's temperature-regulating center in the hypothalamus
As for pale nails, the condition of pale nails can be affected due to obstructed blood flow, for example there is narrowing of peripheral blood vessels, blockage of peripheral blood vessels, exposure to excessive cold temperatures for a long time, decreased blood pressure to shock, dehydration, and anemia.
In general, as long as there are no other complaints such as easy weakness, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, fainting or other complaints, you don't need to worry. However, if you are worried about your condition, I suggest that you consult a doctor directly to find out the condition of your body. If necessary, the doctor will conduct an examination by interview, physical examination, and supporting such as blood tests. If a problem is found, the doctor can provide the right treatment for you.
Some tips that can be done when in an air-conditioned room:
Use thick clothes or use a jacket and gloves and socks if necessary
Consumption of hot food and drinks
Sufficient body fluid needs
Try to make the room temperature not too cold, for example around 24-26 degrees Celsius or according to your body's resistance
