Ever lose feeling in your toes? Or take off your snow boots during winter to notice your toes have turned completely white? (Or worse, purple?) Well, that may be a sign you have a circulation or vascular problem, says podiatrist Melissa Lockwood, DPM. For example, “a lot of female patients have Raynaud’s syndrome,” says Lockwood—a disease that causes certain parts of your body (generally feet or hands) to get cold or numb when faced with chilly temps.

If you do have this condition, or any other circulation issue, Dr. Lockwood says it’s nothing to majorly stress about. That said, it doesn’t hurt to check in with your doctor for an official diagnosis. And if you do have a disease such as Raynaud’s, it’s important to take certain precautions—namely wearing gloves and thick socks if you know you’ll be in cold weather—because it does put you at greater risk of frostbite.
