Raynauds

Just been told that I have got Raynaud's.
With makes your feet feel freezing cold and gives you lots of pain.
Also your hands can feel cold as well.
So with both pain from fibromyalgia and Raynaud's.
More medication to take as well to go with the others I am all ready taking. :-x

I was given medication for Raynauds but decided against it when I looked at the list of potential side effects.

It is a nuisance but I've had it since I was a teenager so I'm well used to it now :-)

This is interesting and confusing.

I've had temperature management issues for years (most usually cold, even on warm days)
I've also been getting weird orange and blue skin mostly on hands and forearms and sometimes face too in the colder months for years also since my youth. People think it's weird, I'm pretty used to it... I show folks my purply hands and they say "What the hell is wrong with you? Are you a Chameleon?". I just tell them it's always been like that.

Holy cow, I just looked it up and it has pain and pins and needles too just like I've had for years and thought it was the norm... I actually get stiff, itchy, numb and painful hands increasingly more often these days, it made me quit playing bass years ago because I just wasn't fast enough anymore (not a huge loss because I wasn't exactly great at it...)

The symptoms aren't all the time and the discolouration isn't that often but do you guys think it's a possibility I have this?
