I'm 18 and for a couple of years now my hands and feet, no matter what, are ice cold and normally pale blue in color. When I go outside my hands tense up, turn blue, and it hurts to move them and when they get warm again they turn a bright red. I researched this and found that is maybe something calls "Raynaud's phenomenom" which is a sort of syptom for scleroderma. My mother had scleroderma. Is raymaud's phenomenom what this problem is? and if so, does this mean I have scleroderma?

Good luck you'll be fine . Xx
