Congrats on the new job! You’ll be awesome! I used to have the exact same thing with my fingers and toes….poor circulation, always cold! (i used to call it “cadaver fingers” lol) My jerk doctor told me “it’s raynauds, 25% of women get it, move somewhere warm.” Well, I also discovered I am sensitive to gluten and ever since going gluten free I have never had my fingers turn white since!!! Along with no more headaches, fatigue, GI issues and tons of other symptoms it erased. I can actually touch ice cubes now without feeling like my fingers are gonna fall off! Best of luck with the new Jay-Oh-Bee!
