My feet are freezing a lot of the time, even with socks on. Do you have any recommendations?
I got diagnosed with Raynaud’s a little while ago and my water heater has been broken. Near the end of my shower it will get quite cold and when I get out my legs will be grey/blue and when I push my finger on them they will have a white indent for a solid ten seconds or longer. And my lower legs and feet will be cold enough to be concerning so I figured that I could ask someone for advice until the water heater gets fixed.
Is anyone else more sensitive to heat than the cold? Every time I get too hot or workout my fingers are red and swollen.
Has anyone else experienced joint stiffness and/or a rash on the hands during a raynauds attack? These symptoms baffle me AND my doctor...
Do we know if compression socks help with circulation for Raynaud's?
I just got diagnosed with Raynaud’s and I’m still trying to figure it all out. If you have it too please dm me or let me know what you know because trying to do research on it is impossible for some reason.
Was your ANA blood test positive or negative after Raynuads manifested?
Does anyone else have to warn their doctors or nurses with blood draws that you have Raynaud's so no one gets nervous when you start changing colors??
Does anyone know what type of disease Raynuads Syndrome is classified as? I have secondary Raynuads because I had fibromyalgia first but from research it’s confusing. Some UK articles say it’s common but US articles say it’s a rare disorder. What are your thoughts?
I've slowly having more and more symptoms show up. after some diagnosis I'm looking to see what other experience people may have had. I believe lupus could be on the table. so much has living has made me scared to get evaluated.
Does anyone experienced blisters and peeling skin on their fingertips? I keep having that over and over again. Once they heal, they just blister again. My rheumatologist hasn’t seen that before with his other patients.
How does vasodpsdtic spasms feel like ? I get intense throbbing pain in my finger when I’m in cold environment or under stress . It’s so painful only relief I get is running warm hot water on finger hands can’t touch my finger and nail bed when it’s flaring up .
Does anyone feel extremely cold with chills and shivering and then hot with sweating off and on? It will literally be minutes in between. I’m not sure if it’s from Raynuads or Fibromyalgia but it didn’t start until after the first Raynuads attack last month.
Hi y’all! I recently described my health symptoms to a close friend who told me to look up Raynaud’s syndrome, which I then discovered one of my parents has. A friend who has an autoimmune disease told me that Raynauds is often a symptom of something else going on. Did any of you experience Raynauds symptoms prior to learning of autoimmune conditions?
I think my raynaud's phenomenon is getting worse. I can't touch anything cold without my hands going numb and turning colors. not only am I having problems with numbness in my hands and feet but most of my body as well. I don't know if this is part of raynaud's phenomenon or not but now when I get in the shower I cannot feel anything. The last couple of days I have gotten out of the shower with scorch marks on myself. I can't tell when the water is too hot either. Right now I am only taking a baby aspirin every night for my raynaud's phenomenon. What helps you? is this heat part of raynaud's phenomenon or something else? I know I need neck surgery again because I also have degenerative disc disease and a screw from my previous surgery has backed out some. This might have something to do with losing some feeling in my arms but not the rest of me. Any help would be appreciated. thanks
Since being diagnosed with Raynauds Phenomenon Syndrome… Am I suppose to let my other specialist know? My rheumatologist is the one who confirmed but do I notify my neurologist?!
These last couple days I’ve been struggling mentally because I had my first Raynauds episode/ attack… it was a complete shocker for me and I panicked.. I find myself constantly checking my hands (since that’s where it happened) and my face & feet since my doctor said it’s possible for it to happen there.. smh
Since Raynauds Syndrome is “secondary” symptom.. what autoimmune disease do you all have that made you have Raynauds?
am I doing the right thing taking a calcium channel blocker for this condition? I have only been taking it while skiing. should I be seeing a vascular doctor? instead of a rheumatologist or nerve doctor? sometimes my feet prick and burn so bad.
