Hi everybody,
 
I hope everybody is having a good day. Today, I was in olive garden with my husband and I was drinking a Strawberry daiquiri without alcohol. Suddenly, my hands got scary white and cold and my fingers got numb. It was the weirdest sensation I had experience yet. It lastet like 40 minutes. Had everyone experince this?

Hi Julianis, what you experianced sounds like Raynauds. I have this and was prescribed
Diltiazem, a calcium channel blocker. Raynauds is usually brought on by cold or stress. The blood vessels in your fingers, toes and even your ears and nose can spasm
and restrict blood flow. My fingers usually turn, white, red and a purplish blue and look dead.

Make sure you let your doctor know about this.

Hugs, Robin

I agree that it sounds like Raynauds. It can also be brought on by alcohol and cigarettes. I use Norvasc for when mine acts up. My coloring is a bit different then crazykitty's, I first get the bluish looking finger nails, then red fingers, then deathly white. When it is in the red stage, I start to notice the loss of feeling and tingling in my fingertips and if it progresses to white then I have no feeling in my fingers at all.

Hi Julianis. I have Raynauds and that is exactly what happens to my hands when they get cold. I don't like to hold cold drinks. I wear gloves when I am moving things around in the freezer. Talk to your doctor. I don't take anything for it, but it made me feel better just knowing what was going on. I have had this for at least 35 years. Now my feet do the same thing.

I'm with the rest of the gang!  My rheumy dx'd me with it and although it didn't really change much- I felt better hearing that it wasn't dangerous but more annoying than anything.  With all of the medical terms I have had to absorb over time- it was nice to hear its not going to cause a lot of trouble!  Not much about fibro et al is that easy!  Whew!  Its my simple win!
Thanks!
