Hi all - i'm new here and I totally belong!

My latest health worry is with my finger turning white when its cold.  I told the doc and he ran some tests and said I have reynauds and have to go to a rheumatologist!  I am sooooooo freaked out now.  A while ago I googled it and it could be cause by so many awful things...  i just can't take the worry!

No reynauds can turn your fingers blue and white. 

Reynauds is an autoimmune condition, thats why they are sending you to the Rheumotologist.  Its nothing to be afraid of.  Its actually a pretty benign condition.

Sorry I'm at work and got interrupted.  They are sending you to a rheumotologist to make sure you don't have any other autoimmune conditions.  These conditions tend to overlap, meaning you may have more than one.  But I still wouldn't get worked up about it.  I know several people who just have Reyauds and nothing else.  You just have to be careful in the cold, make sure you wear good foot wear and gloves, because your extremities are very sensitve to the cold.
