    I am looking for a dx for Cold lower extremity. I have read similiar post and the answer they have come up with is 782.00-disturbance of skin sensation. But in this case the pt does not have the feeling of cold feet - her lower ext are cold to the touch any ideas?

    HI there!
    Probably best to look for other noted/documented conditions, else 780.99 = General Symptoms could be useful.
