2. Cold, clammy skin with a pale look
If you have cold, clammy skin and then take on a pale appearance, you might be suffering from low blood pressure.
It is not uncommon for people with panic attacks or heart problems to get cold, clammy skin and a pale look right before an episode. It can also happen if you’ve eaten just sugar for a few days or haven’t slept in awhile.
It can happen if you get frightfully nervous, like if you have a reaction every time you see blood. It can be hard to distinguish fear and more serious heart problems with the cold, clammy skin and pale appearance of low blood pressure.
That’s why it’s important to visit a doctor regularly and be in touch with a cardiovascular specialist as you get older.
