    from what i recall - there are many potential "causes" that can lead to this occurrence.  standard fight or flight symptomatologies
    you are stressed because of _______________________ (fill in the blank) pain? spouse yelling at you? almost got hit by a car? in danger? issues with co-workers?...... our bodies respond with a stress response.  we hold our breath - bite down (tmj concern) clench our fists - our pupils dilate to increase peripheral vision (for safety) or heart rate increases - blood is shunted (moved) from our peripheral extremities to our major muscle and organs- hands get cold (this way if we are cut .... we bleed less).  we sweat to help cool our bodies down via convection - our muscles tense and tremor.

    these are normal built into our dna cave man/women responses - kill the saber tooth tiger for dinner - or run like (edit) so that you are not the tigers dinner.  either decision we make - our bodies react the same way.  problem is we are not cave people anymore - but our bodies still act like we are and have this stress response.  perfectly abnormally normal.

    there are solutions to this occurrence that require training and more education - commonly called a "relaxation response"
    for more legit info  ----------------------------->
    or --------------------------------------> fuller stress management&f=false 

    fuller and strobel were founding persons in the stress management "fad" in the early 80's - they have been vital to my ongoing survival in this stress filled world !!  but hey ..... no more sabertooth tigers at least !!! 

    there are solutions.

    warm hands - cold heart,

    Once upon a time - in a different life ..... I provided clinical - Psychogalvanic - Thermal - and Electromyographic Bio-feedback training/therapy in the early 1980's and again in the 90's .... or was that another one of those dreams?

    If you were my student (which you are not) (as I am no longer a licensed or certified instructor ....) -

    I would then suggest that you first work on learning to turn on your parasympathetic peripheral vasodilatation via your finger  first.  

    After you have become more familiar with the relaxation response and parasympathy systemically .... then wonk on the various areas of sympathetic vasoconstriction.

    Clear as mud??

    I was very fortunate to have learned and practiced the gray medical arts many decades ago.  We can learn to control certain aspects of our body - Learning all about the fight or flight sympathetic response and how often in modern life it occurs is critical - More critical is to learn (if so inclined) the relaxation response and your ability to turn on parasympathetic - relaxation ..and vasodilatation ...... at least that's how it was in the alleged dream.
