Over the past 4 years my fingers turn white and numb when they get cold. They don't have to be really cold, just simply touching my cold steering wheel can bring it on. The white and numbness looks like my fingers are dead. Today I noticed a change. The very tips of some of my white fingers turned a deep purple, but didn't last too long. A few years back I had to visit an orthopedic for another issue and showed her my fingers. She assured me that it wasn't anything serious and that it happens to many people, but not to be concerned. However, last week my friend said that NO, it is not normal and that I should have another doctor look at them. Has this ever happened to anyone else? If so, what was the diagnosis? I am also the one who has the numbness, tingling and cramping in my feet and legs. Please advise.:confused:
