I have extremely cold fingers and toes, mainly at the tips. I have never noticed any discoloration. Does Raynauds always involve discoloration?

Hum. Never thought about it, or read anything. I would think that a milder form of the disease might exist without discoloration, but that is really just a SWAG.

Raynauds does not always display purple/blue or white finger tips if it is mild. If it is more severe it will because it is cutting off circulation and your skin will turn blue due to hypoxia.

It is just possible that you have circulatory problems and it is not raynauds.

Mine turn red with white blotches all over. They always sting and hurt when changing.
