In brief: If you are in
Cold weather - this does happen to people with raynauds.
Anytime, something is described as "intense" or excessive" - pays to have it checked out though.

In brief: Raynaud's
Although there are many potential causes, one in particular that is more common is raynaud's.
If the symptoms typically worsen with contact with cold weather or with touching objects that are cold - it could be. It is not unusual for the fingers and toes to blanch white then purple. Prior hypothermia of the extremities, certain medications, and positive family history make diagnosis likely.
