For more than a month or so, i noticed that my left thumb has turned nearly blue nearer to the tip of the thumb. It only hurts if im using it to hold something heavy. Other than that it doesn't really hurt.

Just recently i feel when compared to the other thumb, its cold.
My doctor apparently can't tell me what it is, but intends do help me do a blood test.

He mentioned that from my previous blood test, that diabetes is not possible.

All the causes i searched from blueness and coldness in thumb except of thumb injury sounds like im screwed. Is that anyone out there that has the same problem or is able to tell me what is happening?

thanks in advance

  • yeah actually i have the same problem, it's on my left thumb too.. it feels like a bruise but almost like it could be something with the muscle.. i've got a blueish/purplish dark spot on the inner section of my thumb, and it does hurt if i hold something heavy.. it's a little bit puffier than my other thumb, and at the tip it feels cold.. i don't know how long i've had it but i've discovered it today and searching the internet now.also when i push down on it the tissue squishes, i can't really explain it, i'm just hoping it heals soon
