    Red, swollen fingertips? causes?

    I woke up yesterday and my fingertips were red, a little swollen, and felt slightly warm(just the fingertips)! My right hand is a little more noticeable than my left. My thumb in particular feels almost as if I burnt it on something, even though I didnt. ANY clues on what could be causing this? This is completely random!

    Re: Red, swollen fingertips? causes?

    I have a rare disorder called Erythromelalgia. I have the same symptoms in my fingers, toes, and face. It affects the extremities causing redness, swelling, and burning. There is no definitive test to determine if a person has this. It's mainly diagnosed through the symptoms, and if cooling the affected areas causes relief. There is plenty of info online on this disorder. I've had it for 14 years, and it came on suddenly.
