Pain, numbness and tingling in arms and legs

Okay, this started when I was 12 (now 26), never really bothered me much though. It started with a sharp pain going down my right arm, after a few seconds my arm would turn purple and get cold. It would happen maybe a couple times a month and only when I was at school. Around 18/19 years old I started getting the same sharp pain going down both arms and both legs. It would only happen again like once a month and never all at the same time....like one arm or leg at a time. It normally only lasts a few minutes although there have been times when its lasted up to a few hours but that only happens in my legs. The symptoms were a sharp pain going down my legs or arms, a tingling feeling and sometimes that limb would go to sleep. (No more turning purple)  A few months ago I went to a Neurologist because my pinkie and ring finger on my left hand went to sleep, no other symptoms, I thought that was kind of strange. After that all the normal symptoms came back, meaning everyday for about 2 months my arms and legs would "act up" and not one at time, usually like both arms and one leg. Right now its back to it just acting up once a month again, although i still have the thing going on with my two fingers still, more then once a month. It acts up when I'm showering too, when my hand goes in the water, but only my left hand.  I'm still seeing my neurologist but he has no clue as to what could be wrong.  I find this problem more annoying then anything except when it was happening everyday for those 2 months. When that happened I thought the problem was getting worse but then it calmed down again so I don't know whats going on. I would like to know whats going on with me though.
Any ideas?
