Hi everyone,
I'm new here - I got diagnosed just yesterday. (I've been fighting for a diagnosis for a while now & cried with relief when I finally got it.)
I'm reading this with interest as I can barely type my hands are so cold and painful.. I have this a lot - as well as the discolouration in both my hands and feet.
Seems I need to be asking about this myself when I get my referral to the fibro specialist along with the thousands of other questions I have too.

:welcome: to the forum Karen :wave: :wave:

Writing the questions you want answering as well as anything else you want to say to the specialist is something a lot of us have done, helps with remembering them.

If you feel up to it, if you'd like to tell us a little about yourself in "Where To Say Hello", it would be nice to "meet" you.

With you only being dx'd yesterday, you've probably got a million things whizzing around you head at the moment. There is a lot of advice and info on here, if you have a look thru things, you could find some answers to them. And you can always ask about anything you want to know, we'll see what we can do to help you with it :wave: :wave: :wave:

Hi Karen

Cold hands and feet are another horrid symptom of fibro :cry: i have already started wearing my slipper booties, they have a sachet that you heat up in the microwave to keep your feet warm. :lol: My thick socks have come out as well :D :wave:

Thank you for your lovely welcome! Smiles.

Shaz where would I get these slipper booties from hun? I WANT them!! Lol.. :D As for thick socks my eldest (she's 16) has bought me some really fluffy (snazzy) ones from the pound shop.. I love them and they're never off my feet at all (well apart from to wash them... hahaha!

I will have a good nose around the forum after dinner and see if I can find the bit where I introduce myself properly. :D Knowing me I'll still be wondering around here next week, rofl.xx

Hi i am new here too I have cold hands (mostly the right one) it goes all the way up my arm sometimes to my shoulder and neck . My hands, feet also tingele and go blue and swell up i have told the doc but he just ads it to the list of never ending things wrong with me and said its all about learning how to cope . whent i go to the docs he put every thing down to my fibro im not sure if he is right or not is there a test for raynards that i could have ? :crazy:
