Hi all, I’m really well and my meds are working so well I often think I may have been misdiagnosed with Paryox AF. I have only had 3 attacks in 2 yrs. (apologies to those really suffering) My question is, I’ve noticed my left hand, as in today, often looks blue compared with my right? I know it sounds trivial to many problems I read on here, but should I be concerned? Should I go see the GP, or just mention it on my next visit? I’m definitely not Ill, I do get tired easily but who knows?that might be just how I am? Thankyou and best wishes to everyone who is struggling x
Blue left hand?: Hi all, I’m really well and... - AF Association
I think it would be a good idea to see your doctor, just to put your mind at rest.
Have a look at this link:
I walk a fair amount and found that on returning my left arm had been slightly painful around the shoulder. I mentioned it in passing to one of my companions who said that he had a similar feeling. We put it down to lack of activity in this arm and decided to take up Nordic walking with 2 poles. It has made quite a bit of difference, the muscle tone in this arm. We also walk faster without intending to.
It is worth getting it checked out. I have the same with both hands. In cold weather the tips of my fingers go blue because my circulation is poor. (Low blood pressure/ex smoker).
It isn't painful but it makes me look like Mama Smurf.
It's good to hear that apart from that you are doing well.
Funnily enough that was mentioned but discounted.
I understand that when you have open heart surgery, the nerves to your hands can be damaged as I also suffer with pins and needles in the three fingers and palms on both hands.
They fix one thing and something else fails. Oh the joys of getting old !
Hi I’ve not had any attacks since my meds were balanced and it’s easy to think it’s been misdiagnosed but I know my diagnosis was correct .
Blue hand, I have all my life had sometimes one more blue than the other, in the cold though, I have wondered why but never asked about it.....
Interested to here what your doc says
STrange, since I had a pressure angiogram in my left arm that arm has been getting very painful and feels icy cold to me but not to anyone who touches it. There's no difference in colour. I have several spinal problems with trapped nerves and fibromyalgia. When my husband massages the back of my shoulder blade the icy feeling and pain go away. Hard to tell whether it's the artery or a trapped nerve.
