Fingers turning blue?! wow!
Sorry I didn't reply earlier. What did the doctor say? I'm very curious.
More like the nail beds and tips turn purply-blue. It's very creepy, I look dead. :/ Sometimes holding them under hot water during the attacks helps me stop shaking and pinks them up a bit more.
The doctor ordered an EKG (turned out normal, other than higher pulse), but also scheduled an echocardiogram and the 24 hour Holter monitor test. I'll also be getting another full blood panel and a CT scan of my abdomen/pelvis to rule out adrenal tumors or other hormonal problems.
I'm actually HOPING something turns up...I want to get to the bottom of this and figure out what's wrong so I can fix it! He agreed with me that it's not just anxiety or "in my head." Something is definitely "off," whether it's a medication I'm on or some chemical or vitamin imbalance in my body somewhere. I get the same feeling; that maybe I have too much or too little of something, which is causing me to be out of whack. Just gotta figure out what it is!
