Hi, based on your query it happens mostly due to temporary decrease in blood supply to the nerves supplying that area.Mostly, it happens due to a condition called Reynaud phenomenon due to pressure over that areas.Please identify and relieve any stressor resulting in this and still persists, visit a nearby consultant
