Re: Raynaud's Phenomenon?

Toastie toes! Wonderful product. Hunters use them to keep their feet warm in the woods. Most sporting/athletic goods stores sell them. They have a peel and stick thing on them to keep them from sliding in your shoes. Stick to the bottom of your socks. I wear them when I jog outside. Hope this helps.

Re: Raynaud's Phenomenon?

There are supplements that will help expand the capillaries and thus increase circulation. Magnesium would be good to try. Many people with Raynauds have much lower magnesium levels during colder months.

Flush Niacin also increases dilation to the blood vessels. Just be sure to take a minute amount (a 100 mg. tab could be halved) to start - as the flushing effect can be intense.

Re: Raynaud's Phenomenon?

I knit myself up a nice pair of wool socks! In fact, I don't really like to wear anything else but hand made socks. They are not too tight to restrict blood flow, nor too loose to cause blisters. The wool keeps my toes nice and toasty without being sweaty and damp.

Re: Raynaud's Phenomenon?

asked the doc today about it and was a PA but he did tell me to take one aspirin a day for it , to get the blood vessels going well.
