Hi

This morning my left hand middle finger went numb and then turned almost entirely white. I have not had this before. After putting my hands in some warm water the colour came back but pins and needles have continued. My son has Raynaud's. I am 66. Does anyone think it might be developing in me?

    I t sounds like it to me as well, but bear in mind it has been very cold. Just keep gloves on and avoid being chilled.

    One brief episode does not Raynaud's make.  If you are taking medication, that might be a contributing factor, should you have more symptoms.
