Could be Raynauds disease

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HealthcareMagic..
I thank you for posting your query here and I am definitely going to help you out.

I read your question completely and have understood it well enough..
Please note..

1. Yes.. I understand this..
It may be some kind of Arterial disease.
Most commonly in women, Raynauds phenomenon.

2. But, this again usually affects the upper limbs rather than the lower limbs..

3. Hence I suggest these..
A. Stop Alcohol intake if you are taking
B. Avoid exposure to cold as much as you can
C. Get an Arterial Doppler scan of Left lower limb..

4. After this we can plan for the management.

Hope this helps you
