In brief: Nonspecific

This could be many things, from normal to severe.
Autoimmune causes could include raynaud's associated with lupus or arthritis (usually it's not), nerve inflammation (also usually not autoimmune), rare illnesses like vasculitis. More common things like carpal tunnel syndrome usually not autoimmune. Ask your doctor for a history and physical.
