I encountered this problem 2 days ago, I went to have a shower and while showering about 4 minutes into it my hands began to shrivel up. My hands lost all blood flow and became a almost white, blue colour and shrivel up almost as if my hands are pruney. My fingers curl and I find it painful to move my fingers or get the blood flow back up. the only time i have this problem is when my fingers and hands contact water, I tried dipping my hands in water the other day and my hands shriveled up with the same symptoms, no blood in my hand, loss of blood flow and extreme pain in hands especially when trying to move my fingers. If anyone has an idea as to what this would be it would be extremely helpful in helping me diagnose this problem. I have been to the hospital and they do not know what the problem is and are thinking of sending me to a specialist. The problem has been recurring and only happens when i shower, and I do even notice effects when I sweat. Thank you for your time.
