My daughter's left hand from the middle of her hand up to her finger tips turned birght blue-last Tue. It was so blue the school almost had her rushed to the ER. When I got there about 1/2 hour later the blue was much lighter. I took her to the Dr. They took the oxygen level on her finger which read 100. They first said it was raynods. However, when we looked up the symptoms the only symptom that matched was the blue. While waiting for the Dr. the blue started on the other hand too-not as dark though. The color fades in and out and lasts all day. The knuckles stay blue the longest. When the blue fades the white of her left hand is really white. They are not cold at all. We took her back the next day-only her knuckles were blue. She was given an ekg-it was abnormal-but normal for her they say because her heart beats eairlier than most people. It consistantly does this every time so they say it is not a problem. They took a chest x-ray and say all is well there. They drew blood to check and see if there was any tissue damage and there was none. The next 3 days she had a headache, and congestion and did not feel well. She stayed home from school and rested. No blue hands. Today she went to school-- The blue hands started again at about 10:15--one week later. The drs are saying they don't know what it is-but that it is nothing. How can it be nothing--It is something---but what??? Odetta
