Raynauds. Need more information

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

Based on the history that you narrated, it appears to be raynauds phenomenon or disease as far as the symptoms related to the fingers and hands are related.

Joint manifestations warrant that rheumatological work up be done if empiric treatment with NSAIDS don't give relief or the symptoms persist. CBC,ESR/CRP, autoimmune profile, RA factor, anti ccp antibody can be advised accordingly in consult with your doctor/ rheumatologist.

Kindly answer the following to advise accordingly.

For how long have you been experiencing these symptoms.
Do your hands become cold and white /Bluish in color when the hands become painful while interlocking or coming in contact.

let me know if you have any query

Wishing you best of health
