The symptoms of vibration white finger
The symptoms develop over a long period of time, many years after the initial exposure to working with vibrating tools, machinery and equipment. Typical symptoms include:
- Changes in sensation in the fingers
- Changes in the blood vessels in the fingers, resulting in them changing colour and turning white
- Muscular pain
- Symptoms worsen in cold, wet and damp weather conditions
- Pneumatic drills
- Power drills
- Chain saws
It is unclear how the use of hand held vibrating equipment causes the symptoms of vibration white finger to develop. However, it is thought that the slight and repeated injury to the small nerves and blood vessels in the fingers is caused by the repetitive and prolonged use of vibrating equipment and tools. Over a long period of time, the fingers may lose their function and cause symptoms to develop; perhaps years later.
