Does anyone have this? I've had a problem with my hands as far back as I can remember. My palms are always red and I have purple blotches. I came across this article about "Erythromelalgia" And it fits me to a "T"! My hands hurt really bad when its humid and they ache, burn and I can barely make a fist. I "USE" to put ice packs on them and I would get instant relief, but the article said that is the WORSE thing you can do.
My Rheumy gave me blood tests for my hands ( I go to him for my Fibromyalgia) but all my tests came back fine. Since this is a "Rare" thing, Im going to take the info in with me to my next appt. next month.
Just wondering if anyone out there knows anything about it.
hello. that is a big burden to bear for someone of your age. It is suspected that i also have both erythromelalgia and raynauds. My underlying cause is small fiber neuropathy. Do you have the genetic form of the disease? Do you take any medicines?
