Does spotty discoloration of hands indicate a lack of oxygen? My hands have red spots and if i grip for a length of time, they go numb

In brief: O2 OK /Carpal Tunnel

Not due to lack of oxygen.
The red spots are normal variation - some people are just born like this. As for the hand grip numbness - this sounds like carpal tunnel syndrome. Usually affects first three fingers.
