Hi thanks for the query.
You symptoms can be due to Raynauds disease. Do you notice any bluish discoloration when exposed to cold? Does it happen in your toes also? I suggest you visit a physician who will evaluate this further.
Have a healthy life !

Hi.. Exposure to cold can cause constriction of the blood vessels which can cause the symptom that have been mentioned by you... They are not of major concern... However, if you are known to have Reynaud's disease, then you would need precautions to avoid exposure to cold..
