Guys, the tips of my fingers suddenly feel like they have frostbite. I ran them under warm water, which relieved it a tiny bit but now it's uncomfortable again.

And it's summer! So weird!

Are you worked up about something, Hopes? Sometimes when I am upset it seems like my blood is concentrated elsewhere. My hands and feet go cold.

Not worked up at all. I have circulation problems. Never in the warmer weather months though. This is a first.

Raynaud's disease - MayoClinic.com


Not to freak you out Hopes but maybe a possible answer? I am not a Doctor nor do I pretend to be one on CD. I only know about this because I recall a nightline or dateline special wayyyyyyy back when about women suffering from Raynauds Disease.

That's interesting. Mrs. X. I wonder if I have that. For me, it's more of a nuisance, but over the last few years there has been a weird change. If I am startled, all my fingertips feel like they were jabbed with pins, and if the event was very startling or shocking (something sudden, like having to slam on your brakes hard because a dog ran into the street right in front of you), they hurt for a good hour or more. I think it's related to the coldness. Crummy circulation, that's what I've always blamed it on. My toes are downright icy in the winter, all the time, even with socks on.

Raynaund's disease is a possibility, but diabetes would be a more likely possibility of serious causes that would concern me. Whatever it is, it's nerve damage resulting from something, perhaps my B-12 deficiency.

This started two winters ago. So far the doctor hasn't been interesting in figuring it out. It can get downright paintful in the winter. I had to buy cashmere socks (normal wool itches too much). I can't be out in the cold for more than a few seconds. I guess now that it's happening in warm weather months, it will be officially considered chronic if it continues. Maybe my doctor might care to investigate further now.

According to this, I only need to immediately worry about it if it's accompanied by paralysis, confusion, weakness, or slurred speech. I'm not experiencing any of that (although I'm sure I often sound confused here LOL). So it's not a big emergency whatever it is.

Julia, maybe. I do remember the women they were interviewing:

One woman it was more pronouced when she was stressed, startled and had to go food shopping. I remember her having to wear gloves just to get a gallon of milk from the dairy section.

The other it was consistent and no matter how hard she tired to keep them warm, they always felt cold and painful.

Hopes most likely diabetes then! I hope your doctor checks it out when the time comes.
