    Blue hands and knuckles


    I have recently noticed that I get blue hands especially around the knuckle area. I always used to get blue hands when it was cold, but it seems to be happening when it's not that cold now. It seems to happen when I am doing some kind of activity like working on the car or gardening, and I can't be 100% sure but it seems to be when I am bending down to do things

    I have had a few health problems over the past few years and been to see various specialists but so far no one has come up with anything. Here is a summary of my other symptoms

    I have had symptoms for around 8 years now
    Dizzyness, not like spinning, but a sudden falling sensation, constantly lightheaded, feeling unsteady and shaky, feeling weak, feeling like I am passing out, sudden numbness in arms and face and chest area, panic attacks (which I still think are due to my symptoms) ringing in ears, sleep apnea, cold hands and feet, hands sometimes going blue but only when outside, lower back and abdominal pain (more like an ache)
    Along with this I have had lots of heart type symptoms which i have had for about 15 years on and off, chest pain, left arm pain and numbness, feeling suddenly hot, tingling in arms and legs usually left sided, feeling I can't breath properly, and also these strange sensations which I can only describe as similar to the falling sensation you sometimes get when falling asleep. Its like I have stopped breathing although I know I haven't, but this sudden urge to take a deep breath along with an acute panic type feeling
    which only lasts a few seconds, as though i have just had a shot of adrenaline or something, or like an electric shock. Its hard to describe but its scary

    any advice appreciated
