What causes hands turning black and blue?

25 year old woman who had Guillian-Barre as a child. Last couple months experiencing episodes of hands turning black or blue. How likely is it that she is experiencing Renauld's phenomenon? What kind of doctor would be best to consult for further evaluation?

Hi,
Thanks for asking.
Based on your query, my opinion is as follows.
1. Hands turning black and blue could be due to vasospasm secondary to Raynauds phenomenon
2. As it is episodes, it is most probably Raynauds phenomenon.
3. You will need to consult an internal medicine specialist for diagnosis and confirmation.
Hope it helps.
Any further queries, happy to help again.
