No, but an underactive thyroid gland can. Ask your doctor to run some thyroid function tests (TFTs) on you.

No, only coldness in the heart, which is worse. But reduced activity brought on by depression could. Exercise is the first recommended treatment. Get out and go for a brisk walk in the fall air. That will both warm you up and help the depression. If it's too cold out, do a couple laps around the mall -- then window shop. Walk first. Call a friend and talk it over. Maybe the friend would like some exercise too. You can't make someone feel affection, but it's up to you how you deal with it.

If the lack of affection seems to be due to alcohol or drugs, hit an Alanon or CODA meeting. Google either one for meetings in your area.

If the coldness continues, by all means speak with your physician, but the most obvious is usually the place to start.

Is constant affection abusive?

If this is literally constant affection, then it counts as an obsession. Obsession towards a person can very easily lead to abuse.This begins at the point that the target of the affection is hindered by it. Just check: Do you receive more affection than you want? Is the affection enforced on you? If yes, it's abuse. Affection is one thing - and compulsive acts (the outcome of obsession) an entirely different issue. Obsessive jealousy, confinement, lack of respect for your boundaries, needs, and emotions, isolating you from your support network and social milieu - these are all abusive behaviors but they have nothing to do with affection!
