    Raynaud problem

    I had a painful experience with raynaud during winter 2011, went to hospital, was advised to keep myself warm and was charged $500. Through curiosity I later tried pomegranate extract 250 mg for many months and I found that during the winter of 2012 I did not experience any pain at all. I stopped the pomegranate extract 2-3 months ago and did not continue for a while. Now I feel the numbness on my fingers are starting to come back. I have started taking the pomegranate extract again yesterday. This time I also add grape seed extract in my diet, plus my normal intake of vitamins, and fish oil. I am hoping for a painless winter this time around. Anybody out there have the same experience?
    Just want to include here, during the painful moments in 2011, I took a lot of pain killers, but nothing help to stop the pain, I then remember what the dentist used to numb the gum before injection, I went to buy Orajel maximum strength and applied to the painful spots on my fingers...it worked good for me.

    Keeping your extremities warm is really the best way to avoid the attacks of Raynaud's and avoiding attacks is the best way to avoid the pain. Vascular health is also a great thing to promote. Were your particularly painful spots caused by little sores?

    Yes, I had black spots and broken skin on my fingers that caused the pain. I did try to keep my fingers warm by using hand warmers, wear special gloves and soaking in warm water. When I started to have broken skin and when the pain was unbearable I used Orajel to numb the pain. I had sleepless nights due to the pain. I will always try to keep my hands warm. Thanks for your advice.

    Check with your Dr because they sound like ulcers and should be under supervision. Make sure you take your gloves everywhere and I do sympathize. They can be excruciating!
