Hi Littleflower and Welcome! :)
I was dxd. with secondary Raynauds several yrs after I was dxd. with RA. I had pain in my knuckles(not the tips) and ankles from RA, so I didn't associate finger pain with Raynauds. My hands both turned medium blue the first time. I wondered what everyone was looking at until I looked at my hands. It looked like I was wearing blue gloves. I thought I was dying, of course(I was young).
I have mild secondary Raynauds. No meds for it in particular. My nose, hands, feet and ears are usually cold. If I hold something frozen for 10 seconds, my hands hurt, freeze, turn white, then red and sometimes a lighter blue and a pain shoots up my arm. I feel cold most of the time. The slightest breeze will give me a chill. My hubby and I sometimes argue about
the a/c being on. I usually lose that one.
I really enjoy wearing a sweater in the house during the summer. :/ That cold part could be a symptom of RA too.
Having a low grade fever and flu-like symptoms are common with RA.
Please do not have RA on top of MS.
