I was diagnosed with this back in NOV.
 My hands, feet and lips turn different colors yellow, blueish.... nailbeds turn blueish.... and my feet and hands are always very cold. When I soak them in warm water they start to turn a very pale yellow before they start to look normal again. After about an hour they look weird again like i'm dead......rolleyes
I think the LD has caused this, I hope it doesen't get worse.....
 Does anyone else have this? Did it happen after the LD?
Thanks, GG

It is very scary, cold weather makes it much worse for me.
Does the cold weather make yours worse?

Although undiagnosed with Lyme I have suffered Raynaud's since all my symptoms started, much more so in my hands than my feet and mainly my left hand, the nailbeds go down to this horrible corpse like grey colour, and the recent cold spell here in England wasn't much fun for me, I've found that all you can do is keep your hands and feet warm as possible, thermal gloves and socks help a lot, and the scariest bit is when you get it in your nose lol, cant beat looking in the mirror and seeing a grey nose on your face shocked
