Hi there,

Yes you need to see a doctor. Bluish discoloration of these parts of the body especially if associated with pain signifies significant decrease of blood flow in this area.
The more the management is delayed the more that you will have problems later on. The more that it will add to your anxiety. So you will smoke some more and harm yourself more since it was smoking that started it all.
See a doctor. Now.
