Swollen hands, feet, redness, purple discolouration on knuckles, cold to touch. Due to anemia or stress?

ok, I have been to the doctor and had multiple tests done on me and no one can figure out why my hands and feet are swollen and beet red. my knuckles are purple/blue. they are cold and clamy most of the time. I know that emotional stress and cold weather triggers this but the effects last all day long. This is very embarassing to me ..... I am Anemic if that helps I hate living like this

Hello ~ Though emotional stress could trigger these reactions, it is more likely that you have a cardiopulmonary problem. I would suggest you see your family physician first and get a general physical exam and some preliminary tests after which you may need a referral. I hope this helps. Take care.
