Consult needed: These symptoms are systemic. Meaning not a localized problem such as something limited to your hands/feet. It is something your body feels obligated to do. Consult with an internist and go from there.

Possible : Raynaud's syndrome or disease. See a doctor to confirm the possible diagnosis.
