You are experiencing these symptoms due to vasospasm of the small arteries of the hand . This can occur in Raynaud's phenomenon.

Other causes could be blockage of any other vessel above and needs Doppler study e.g a cervical rib pressing the brachial artery.

You must show it to a doctor and if no secondary cause is there treat Raynaud's phenomenon with nifedipine, prazosin, losartan etc.
