Thumbs up Raynauds Disease-becoming very common now!

Raynauds Disease, a disease affecting the circulation affects thousands each year. It is hereditary and is confused with Lupus. While searching on the wonderful world of Web for information on this disease I was fortunate to find others who posted web sites and message boards regarding this problem. The fingers, and toes are most affected by the cold and stress. Circulation is cut off and eventually if not properly cared for and diagnosed, amputation could occur. Please consider this disease as part of your forum..even as a test. Just see how many click in for it! Thanks!

I second your suggestion! Raynaud's Disease runs in my family, and it would be useful to have a forum to discuss it.

Thumbs up

I also agree. My mother has Raynaud's Phenomenom and I also see posts about this problem throughout these boards. Would be nice to see a forum about it.
Take Care,
Lori

Wink

Just a sidenote for anyone with Raynauds...there is a product that is wonderful that I found this year. They are called Mycor hot hands. Or just hot hands. These are sold in sporting goods stores. I found mine in sportsauthority.com under the heading of hunting/outdoors sports. HEATERS
They are very efficient little pads that when opened and exposed to the air heat up. They heat up real hot too and are wonderful to wear under mittens or gloves. I use them at the supermarket. In the summer I just keep one with me and shift it from one hand to the other. My hands do not turn white then. they stay toasty warm. My doctor saw me using one and remarked what a wonderful Idea it was and is very cost efficient. They cost in the bulk at places like Costco or BJ's 17 dollars for 40 packs. Each pack lasts up to ten hours. Some that are sold at Sportsauthority.com last up to 24 hours and are larger. They cost a bit more at 10 for 11 dollars. I purchased the bulk size and did not even get a dent into the packs this winter. Watching tv, driving, supermarket...anywhere. Try it!
