Is this Raynauds or something else?

Hi everyone, I'm 37 and this started when I was 35. I've always had low blood pressure and bad circulation, but here in the past two years, my fingers and toes will go white and numb. It has just recently been happening quicker, I wear gloves all the time, but even walking from the car into the store (a 1-2 min) walk will make them that way, and sometimes they hurt like crazy, almost like they are on fire and I am unable to do the simplest of things with my fingertips and have to use my knuckles to get my credit card out if I haven't gotten them warmed back up in time. I'm a little scared now, because some of the things I've read have linked this to Lupus or Rhuematoid Arthritis. I was diagnosed with Celiac 2 years ago, could that have something to do with it? Any suggestions?????

Re: Is this Raynauds or something else?

scroll on down to the neuropathy board,i think you will see yourself there.it sounds like you may be suffering from whats called peripheral neuropathy.this happens alot in diabetics mostly as the periphery blood circulation starts to diminish over time.if you know you have poor circulation coupled with low BPs,this could also cause PN.take a good look at some of the threads there and read thru them and see what you think.this really does sound rather classic to me.tho other things should be also ruled out.have you seen your doc about this?a neurologist?FB
