I was wondering if anyone else may have what I have. My fingers have been hurting nonstop for three weeks. I am about 6 months pregnant. I was diagnosed with Raynaud's Phenomenon disease a few years ago, only this time the pain is very different. The pain comes at any time rather it is cold or not. It not only hurts at the tip but a little below the knuckle. When I am in pain I notice the veins along the finger acting upbulges out. It does not happen to just one finger but each one individually or three out of five. My pointer finger also is always cold and pale even if not in pain. The pain has been happening before, during after my pregnancy(I am with our second child.) My doctor says it is just raynaud's even without running a few test to be certain.
