LOL, Carol, at least you can laugh at all this. You have a wonderful humour that is totally infectious! Just as long as that bird isn't belly up with frozen feet......
Yeah, your description of them getting super cold and then going "normal" is exactly what Raynaud's will do. I get that with my hands. I'll be ice cold and stiff, and then super hot to the point that my hands and fingers are swollen, red and throbbing from the heat. Raynauds is really weird. So if your doctors mentioned CREST to you in the past, it's pretty likely that is what it is.
When is your next doctor's appointment with your rheumy? I'd bring it up for sure. "Normal" for us is a brief moment in time when we say to ourselves, "That's weird? I don't feel any pain. No discomfort. How odd?" Is that sad or what! LOL!
Hope your evening is going as well as it can! Love and hugs to you and pup!!
