Like everyone else here, I also have raynaud's. It's never been determined whether it's secondary or primary, but since I have seropositive RA, and SLE sx, I think it may be secondary. I get the 3 color change that is typical of raynaud's, but what it is more troublesome is how incredibly sensitive and sore my fingertips get. They get so sore I can't use them. Drives me crazy. I finally started taking procardia (nifedipine) a couple of months ago and it has made all the difference in the world. My feet and hands still get incredibly cold (temperature outside doesn't seem to matter that much), but I do not have the soreness and pain in my fingertips as long as I take the meds. Procardia has made a huge difference. Other than that, just trying to keep warm.
Get your finger checked out again--that doesn't sound too good.
