fingers

Postby libbiek30 » Sun Feb 16, 2014 11:16 am

I have been getting pains in my fingers and my thumb is very painful and I am really struggling to use my right hand. I can't open things or manipulate anything. My daughter just had a dancing exam and I couldn't put her hair up! Anyone else get the same? Is it the cold weather?

I get this, its very annoying, but I also have Raynaud's, hurts to use my hands...

Some days I cant open or grip things, and cant cut food up at meal times. My GP said it was my fibro more than Raynaud's so I just put it down to that.

Hope it isn't causing to much pain for you.

Mention all these symptoms to your Rheumatologist tomorrow. It could be Raynauds, fibro or something else. Either way, get it checked.

Hi whoami,

I have already been diagnosed with Raynaud's, fibro out of control meds I was put on not working, restricting my everyday life a lot, and its got worse.

Fingers crossed they can help a bit more.

I get this, I never associated it to my Raynaud's just more fibro nonsense! I always call them "Ataxia Attacks" actually
