Hello doctor,

I can notice some dots in vision when I heat up fast. My hands shake when I go into attack. I have blue fingers in cold; red swollen fingers and toes when it is hot outside also. I have intense pain everywhere when my hands are swollen. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • There is a condition called Raynaud's phenomenon, in which the finger tips turn blue on exposure to cold. Subsequently, when the hands are warmed they turn white, then red and then normal.
  • This could be a benign condition, especially in young ladies. Sometimes, it may be associated with a connective tissue disease called systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
  • SLE has constellation of findings such as fever, arthritis, pleuritis, nephritis and headaches. I do not think you have any of these symptoms.
  • So, it would be better to keep warm. If you still have problems then you could see your primary physician who could suggest some vasodilator medications.
