In brief: Raynaud's
This is a condition where the small blood vessels go into "vasospasm" (open and close quickly) not allowing blood to travel through them. Often brought on by cold exposure or stress.
There is a difference between raynaud's disease and raynaud's syndrome. The disease is when it is a stand alone problem and the symptom is when it is caused by a different primary disease.

In brief: Raynaud's
I this happens upon exposure to cold, raynaud's phenomenon could be the cause.
Also hypothyroidism could be a factor.
