Raynaud's in only one finger?

Does anyone else have this? I first developed Raynaud's about a year ago, and it affected all my fingers. In recent weeks it has changed and is affecting only the tip of the Index finger on my left hand...

I have found that the index finger in my right hand becomes blue more often, but I also have changes in the other fingers though not always at the same time. Do you?

I don't seem to be getting Raynaud's in any of the other fingers at the moment - just the tip of the Index finger on my left hand, which goes white and then back to pink again (never blue). I have tried to take a photo, but by the time I have got my phone out my finger has returned to a normal colour!

I have found that my right index finger is the worse is always white and cold and is the one where I mainly get the ulcers which take ages to heal.

Even when I am on ILOPROST it is still the coldest finger.

Do you still get Raynaud's in all the other fingers?

Yes, all of them and my toes - but my fingers as worse.

I know it's been a long time since you posted here but I was just wondering if you have been diagnosed with scleroderma. I just developed Raynaud's in the index finger only and doc said it was due to carpal tunnel which I have not had tests for. I had hand pain at the time with that finger having Raynaud's. She had me wear a brace at night and now hand feels better but I still have the Raynaud's in that one index finger. Scared this is a sign of scleroderma in my future.

I started off with raynauds in other fingers, now get it mainly in right hand index finger, fingers are very sore and feet! Still getting raynauds very occasionally in some other fingers but my index finger has a life of it's own!

Marie, have you been officially diagnosed with scleraderma and if so what were your first signs/symptoms? My hand pain started this past April and that's also when the Raynaud's started in my left index finger. Like I mentioned b4, my doc diagnosed me with carpal tunnel, (no test taken), had me wear a night brace, and hand pain went away. However, that index finger is still having raynauds attacks. Its now September, and nothing has changed.

No, not yet, so many things happening, slightly swollen knuckles, tightness on top of feet and hands, both hands and feet get boiling hot too. Had more blood tests, awaiting results. Raynauds same and more fingers involved as it gets colder. Bit fed up at the moment, fingers and toes are so sore, just try to keep warm, not on any meds at the moment just ordinary painkillers.

Hi Marie, we chatted a few months ago. You mentioned you were waiting on blood test results. If you don't mind answering, did the results give any clarification on why you are having those symptoms?
