Hello everyone,

 

I’m never sure what forum to post on since I seem to have symptoms from several disorders. My current pressing issue (aside from my optic neuritis) is burning hands. My hands are always red and blotchy now but only on the palm sides not the knuckle sides. They hurt most of the time especially at night and especially in any position other than straight up and down (like if I was waving). This makes it almost impossible to sleep along with all my other symptoms. Does anyone have any thoughts/suggestions/remedies for this? I would really like to get some sleep again.

 

Thanks!

It could be Raynauds or vitamin B12 deficency.
Raynauds comes from blood vessels in the hand constricting from cold or stress. Is your bedroom cool?

My hands look like that if I grab a cold drink.

I keep my bedroom around 77 all the time. I guess it could be stress... I've been nothing but stress for months now. Thanks for the info.

Akkami, stress just makes everything flare up worse. Regardless of your specific condition. One thing we can all do to help ourselves is figure out our biggest stressers and learn new ways or practice ways we know will work to calm and relax our bodies and minds. We can't forget to take the time to pamper ourselves and think of it as investing in our own well being. If we nurture ourselves it only has positive effects that trickle down into our relationships with others, outlook and healing.

Easier said than done, don't I know it! But please take care of yourself and alleviate some of that stress. Also, when you can't sleep well it effects everything as well. As a rule anything that impedes my ability to get a good night's rest is brought up with my doctor. It's so important to get your sleep!

I did a search last week for someone who has red palms all the time. I kept getting hits about liver disease. Has your liver been checked?
