Your symptoms indicate Raynaud's phenomenon. This can be caused by several things like smoking, immune disorder (scleroderma), drugs, blocked arteries, genetic factors etc. In many patients, no obvious cause is found. You should see a doctor to get some routine blood tests done to look for high cholesterol, antibodies, inflammation etc. The mainstay of treatment is to avoid cold temperatures by wearing warm clothes and avoiding staying outdoors for too long on cold days. Certain prescription medications can also help control the symptoms. So you should see your doctor soon for an exam.
