: I may have been diagnose with Raynauds , there is a possibility that it stems from either lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. I haave already been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. What is Raynauds ?
I don't know if you've gotten answer elsewhere yet, but I have Raynaud's, secondary to an autonomic nervous system problem. It is a problem with vascular spasms of the capillaries in the fingers, toes, tongue, ears, face, etc. Most people only notice it in their fingers. When your fingers are exposed to cold or stress they turn blue, pale, reddish, etc. It's a circulatory problem. Hope this helped you a bit.
