Every winter my toes become nearly black, i've been tested for several diseases, and raynaud's was ruled out also. What else could it be?

In brief: Still can be Raynaud

It ca still be raynauds as there is no blood test or imaging or anything that can rule it out ( a good exam and observation of the event is important ).
If you have excessive sweaty feet or hands this also may be hyperhidrosis with increased sympathetic nervous system activity (not harmful to you). Would be nice to see a good picture of a classic event.

Sounds like you need to be seen by an expert who deals with this kind of thing.

Did he see the toes in the nearly-black state? Was he concerned? Did he recommend any other studies?
