that happened to me when i went swimming in my pool a couple days ago, I have to get used to the freezing cold for BUD/S, so I went swimming in my water when it was 63 degrees. It got really hard to breath in the water and felt like something was squeezing me, I should have gotten out. But, instead, I stayed in and did my laps and shivered like hell. My hands and feet looked like that, as well as some of my face, when I got out, but then again, I'm already extremely pale (I was born 3 months early, so I have a melanin deficiency). I got pneumonia (i have no idea how to spell that word) from it. (I was in the pool for about 40 minutes or so, a little longer). If you get a strange back pain, then you definately have pneumonia (bad spelling again), and it isn't really you'r back, it's you'r lung. You might notice it when you caugh, extremely painfull (ive got it right now). If you do, see a doctor immediately. The green color (from what I was told) isn't really green, it's a blueish color, it's from a lack of blood flow
. Cut the circulation off to you'r hand and you'll see it do it again. Sort of like when you get red from sunburns about an hour after being in the sun for a while, it's from the extreme flow of blood to you'r skin there to repair you'r stupid ass for being in the sun for too long. Or when you have a sunburn and you press on a part of you'r skin, it gets really white, thats it again. OK, im just babbling now, go see a damn doctor man, don't ask a forum why you'r hands are green, lol.
