Spine Surgeon 's  Response
Thank you for your question.

From what you have described it does not seem to be related to spine. Coldness of the hand, skin changes and swelling of legs are all signs of vascular pathology. The blood vessels may be narrowed for some reason or the vessel walls may have pathology. It is advisable to consult a vascular surgeon.

Best wishes.
