Re: Is this normal for Raynaud's?
Thank you for your reply. I honestly can't remember if I was diagnosed with primary or secondary. I just remember them testing me for a whole lot of things and then they told me that it was just simply Raynaud's, when all those tests turned out negative. My doctor at the time told me the solution was to move to Africa (the doctor thought that was pretty funny, cause she was from Africa!). I had been working way up north in the winter and that is what seemed to have brought it on. The doctor thought it was pretty neat that my hands matched up exactly the hands in her medical book.
In the past I have asked about my hands to my current doctor. She told me there wasn't much more she could do for me. She has already tried me on many of the medications that they give for Raynaud's. Those medications have not worked at all. She did mention a surgery but, she won't let me go that route.
I was just wondering if it is normal for hands to go that red, puffy and painful at work. Usually my hands are just really cold, dry, and have lost circulation.
