Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Yes possible.Chemical exposure may trigger immune response.That can cause narrowing of the blood vessels resulting in blue fingers.Your blood pressure is also running moderately high.Anxiety can make things worse.A calcium channel blocker like Amlodipine should help to improve your symptoms and blood pressure.Are you on any medication now?Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable and authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:
