Ive had systemic scleroderma, RA and Raynauds etc. for 14 years. One of my fingers has been numb and purple from the knuckle to the tip of my finger for 5 days! I'm in severe pain like a rubber band has been on my finger for 5 days. It's getting harder for me to move my finger and it's always cold literally I haven't had circulation for 5 days straight. The last time this happened it was just the tip of my finger and it eventually died and fell off but this time it's my whole finger I can't loose my whole finger! ive done everything to help it such as heating pad, nitroglycerin, and a light that is for circulation nothing has helped. It's my left arm and now I'm having pain in my wrist. please help me figure out what to do I haven't been to the dr yet because I know more about my illness then they do
