Q: Red knuckles

Just wondered if this is a symptom of RA.  For the last few weeks there are moments when my knuckles all the way to my fingertips are red.  Not usually in pain at the time this happens but they are very red on both hands.

I don't know, but my hands-from about an inch or 2 above the wrists on both hands at the same time...are red all the way down my whole hands and fingers. And my rheuma told me it is reynauds phenomenon. This isn't all the time, but it happens often.
