Diagnosed with carpal tunnel in both hands, slip disc, have bluish tinge on fingernails, coldness on hand. What could be the cause?

I was diagnoised w carpal tunnel in both hands in November 2011 and a slipped disc in my 5th Lumbar . I m right handed and my right hand always seems to be cold . I notice one day my fingernails were a light blue on both hands but worse on the left. I see my Neurologists in a month so I haven t had a chance to tell latest health issues. Is there something else that may have been missed or another health issue such as poor circulation?

Hello Kimbrown,
It is always better to get examined near a neurologist or neuro-physiotherapist . They can do some physical/clinical examinations like sensory examination and some special tests as well. Light blue on your finger nails (synosis) could be a cause of some systemic disorders like circulatory or respiratory conditions.
wish you a good health soon.
