I'm not sure there are any meds for the Raynauds, but some of the others who have Raynauds may know. If you don't get some good answers in this topic, please post a new topic with the word "Raynauds" in the title so those members can help you better.
Glad you found us!!

Hi Lady Hendley,
Welcome to the forum. I have had Raynaud's for a long time and have never been given any type of treatment for it. Like Rosie, I'm not sure if there is a treatment.
I know what you mean about
the pain. If my feet or fingers get too cold it is very painful. I just try to keep them as warm as possible. I always wear socks, even in the summer. A good warm blanket or heating pad helps too. When my fingers get too cold, I run warm water over them and put gloves on. Also a good warm cup of coffee or hot tea feels good to hold too...
The others had some good suggestions too. I hope you get some answers soon and relief. Hang in there and keep us updated. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
