Hello people, 

since I've been ill ( possibly autoimmune,not diagnosed yet) I started getting blue-grey nails when I am cold. I had a capilaroscopy and Raynaud's was diagnosed but... my Raynaud's is not like everyone else's. My dingers don't hurt, don't change colors and I have no problem with touching cold thinks like ice,snow,etc. But what happens is when I ave chills or I feel cold ( whole bdy cold I mean) the lower part of my nailbeds turns bluish grey color and goes away as soon as I stop feeling cold or I go into the shower. That's it, nothing more. I can hold snow perfectly fine, no problem there. It just happens when I am cold all over and having chills. Is it still Raynaud's? It only happens in Fall/Winter time and the capilaroscopy showed it was but still... could it be cyanosis and not Raynaud's?
