    Raynauds phenomenon is a pretty common and most time harmless. However it is a circulatory
    problem and should be watched . Raynauds (if this is whats happening with you) can happen along with some autoimmune diseases. Here is a link so you can read more on it.

    I've had raynauds for several years now . I also have RA too . My grandmother had Raynauds and my daughter also has it. BUT please get this check as it is also could be a sign of a heart condition or high blood pressure,anxiety ect......... Try not to worry yourself by thinking the worse.
    See your doctor as soon as you can.

    it runs in families . My hands and feet sometimes turn so blue that the look like there bruised.
    Also people with diabetes get this problem sometimes too.

    High blood pressure. I can tell when my pressure is up by my hands and feet being reddish and feeling hot. Sometimes I just wish I could soak my feet in ice water.

    After reading the other posts, maybe we both need to speak with our doctors!
