I have been going to different doctors and specialists lately for some problems I have been having (used to have svt but am still getting heart palpatations and stomach problems with my throat swelling up).
My problem that no doctors seem to know anything about is why my fingertips are very tender, cold and act like play-doh. I can push the skin around and shape it and it will stay like that for awhile. My thumbs are the worst. It seems like I don't have enough padding in them. They get very wrinkled in the cold also. I'm only 33 so I don't think my fingertips should be so wrinkled yet. My parents' fingertips are fine and they are in their 50's.
I have been tested for Raynaud's phenomenon but those tests came out negative. After my doctor did this test she has no clue what it could be. I've been sent to thyroid and heart specialists for my other problems (now they think I might have celiac disease). I showed all of them my fingertips and they have no idea what it could be either. This doesn't seem like a symptom of celiac disease.
It's really hard to open any containers with my fingertips like this. I have some permanent creases in my thumb now from trying to open a nut last year around Christmas.
