For over 2 years now my fingers have a sort of edema and the finger nails have started to have a blue ring next to the white crescent. I have talked with my homeopath who thinks, raynaud's, sleep apnea or carbon monoxide poisioning and the chiropractor is voting for raynaud's. I have searched the web for symptoms, etc. And don't seem to fit any of them. 2 years ago a pa stated that my heart wasn't pumping properly so I ended up having a test where they look at the valves, etc as my heart works. Very interesting, but the cardio said there was nothing wrong with the heart. My question is,... Who would I go see to get to the bottom of this?
Also, I had my gall bladder out a little over a year ago and when I was in the hospital, the fingers went back to normal. No swelling or discoloration. Any clue here? I am really frustrated and wondering if I should be worried.

If you only have swelling or discoloration of a single digit of the hand, it is more likely a localised inflammatory or allergic reaction either due to a insignificant insect bite or contact dermatitis.

Consult a dermatologist for a proper opinion.
