have you or your doctor looked into Raynauds Phenomenon? I have that and my fingers get numb and blue from time to time. They put me on a calcium blocker (amildopine) and it helped a lot. Before I was diagnosed with lupus I had to wear wrist braces to bed every night because I would sleep with my wrists cockeyed (so my fingers would rest on my inner arm and wrist) and I would always wake up in pain. Once lupus was diagnosed and they put me on meds I started feeling a lot better.
Hope this helps! Kathy
