I am new to this cite and keep reading different forum headings. I just happened to get into this one and read about the lady's tingling and pain, then I read your reply. I am about to start another series of tests for the autoimmune disease that is such a mystery to ALL the doctors in my area. One of the suspects is Raynaud's Phenonmenon. My maternal grandma also had it. What kind of meds are available for it as it is quit painful at times?? I also have a terrible time healing the cracks and sores that I get on my fingertips, too. Any suggestions???

Welcome Lady!!

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!!

Welcome, I'm new to the forum too.. Not yet Dx, but do have the problem with cold hands, they are cold every PM and evening.  Turn whitish, then bluish...palms and feet are bad too...not as bad as my hands.  I wear gloves everyday in the house and use the bean bags that I warm up in the microwave.  I heard to wear a hat as well, it keep the body warmer.  they have not Dx me for Raynaud yet, but they are looking for circulation problems as well?  I do not know of any Meds...but others might..

keep in touch

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.
