Symptoms: cramps, breast tenderness, vertigo

My period is due today, but it hasn’t arrived yet. Every day this week, while I was driving home from work, my left hand would go numb. The numbness would resolve after I arrived home. Today, however, the numbness didn’t go away, and my right hand also became numb. The tips of my fingers on both hands turned blue. Joey rushed me to the ER, where an official diagnosis wasn’t made (the numbness and blue discoloration resolved before the ER doctor saw me). A nurse suggested Raynaud’s syndrome (or phenomenon), and gave me some literature on this harmless but alarming disorder.
