I had my first snow day and was out in the snow for basically a full day with gloves that were supposedly water resistant but did little to keep my hands warm. its been 12 hours since i went out and my fingertips, excluding my thumbs are still tingling/pins and needles feeling. i've run them under warm water and tried to massage them for circulation. i doubt its frostbite since theyre my normal color, but could this be nerve damage or will it go away?
