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

      Lavender oil mixed with Frankencense oil helps my raynauds. I’ve been using it for years. It just helps calm the skin and relieve many any achiness. Also massaging the area encourages blood flow and the oil just makes it more pleasant.

        @Nocturne where do you buy lavender oil mix?

        @Nocturne I love the those scents. I'll have to try those oils together.

      I have a paraffin wax machine, plus I wear gloves a lot at times, and use lotion plus message it. Yes I am on meds but just one for everything

        @Overcomer never thought about a paraffin wax machine. May have to look into that

          @butterfly39 My rhematologist recommended it. I also read that with scleroderma it is recommended to use it daily.

      I take magnesium and it helps. Stimulants can make symptoms worse - especially certain medications. Wool socks.

        @nurospice yes I also take magnesium daily.

      There are blood pressure meds that help. There are creams too thatvu put at base of finger. I have the condition pretty bad. I double over in pain .I am an icicle unless it is 85 degrees. Warm water bath..slowly get in. Warm the room first. Warm water not hot then make it warmer. Gloves with fingers cut off all the time. Clothing that wicks moisture. This may sound absurd but eat hot peppers. The capcasin really helps warm u up inside. Stress makes it all worse.
