Thank you for that additional information.

You might be suffering from a condition called Raynaud's disease.

Here is a very good article from a highly respected source that you might find helpful:

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/raynauds-disease/basics/definition/con-20022916

With this condition your your circulation would test as normal .

So. What should you do?

Ask your doctor if he feels you might have this condition.

Does this make sense to you?
