How old are you?
I suffered as a teen then grew out of it. My eldest daughter also suffered as a teen but again grew out of it.

A friend in my walking club had it bad, summer walks in the hills he was in shorts and tee shirt but two pairs of gloves. He sadly passed away last year with an unrelated condition.
I hope it passes for you.

Will you stop having my diseases.

Got the onset of frostbite in both hands
while on the bike some years ago, that's
on the 14 July 2008 on a welsh mountain.
A weather bomb came in unexpected.
The moral of the story is don’t leave home
without gloves.
Running on the spot and hands under my armpits
saved one, but my left hand never been the same since.
Goes cold quick if temp on the low side.
The same as Bear Grills, but he was careless he’s got it in
both hands.

I tend to wear one glove so been accused of doing a
Michael Jackson impression, which did not go down to well.
Must learn Moonwalk just in case it happens again.

Best advice is keep calm and carry on.

Mine seems to be better since I started doing more exercise.

I do make a big effort to keep my hands warm and also my wrists. I invested in some expensive wrist warmers this winter so my wrists and most of my hands stayed covered even when I took gloves off.

It's not just a winter thing though. Even on a hot day walking into an air-conditioned building can set mine off.

I found that very textured handlebar grips made it worse so I'm careful to use fairly smooth ones.

Good luck with the meds.

I have had it all my life (72 now) but didnt know what was wrong till my daughter was diagnosed. Mine is my fingers, hers are her feet.
Weird but I can have very cold days when its no problem or cool days when my fingers go white and lose feeling.
To my knowledge the experts have no solution but I hope I am wrong.
