A few months ago, my ring & middle finger of my left hand started going numb & cold off and on. I thought it was just a pinched nerve and blew it off. But through time it has gotten worse.. symptoms got more frequent and more painful. Cold, numbness, throbbing pain and turning white and bluish/purple. Since then these symtoms have traveled the full length of my left arm to my shoulder. and now to the right hand. I have seen a doctor who checked my blood pressure, blood test and an EKG with no answers he sent me to a neurologist who then did a nerve test & and MRI and perscribed Prednisone. these symptoms are constant but get worse when exposed to cold. If anyone has any ideas, I would really appreciate it.. Thank you
