    Yes I have Raynaud's too.

    After a day in the sun I am still freezing and in winter my hands and feet are like pieces of ice.

    Arthur and his friends sure know how to party don't they!

    Hi

    I have Raynauds and psoriatic arthritis.

    Its not a great combo - especially in winter when my hands are so cold they are numb, but somehow the lumps on my finger joints are more painful on the steering wheel etc?

    Sometimes a double whammy on the pain factor...... :(

    Hi
    Yes i get raynauds. I use to get it more before i started the arthritis meds.
    At the beginning I wasnt being treated for the arthritis untio i went to my GP and mentioned about the purple lumps i was gettign on my fingers and toes and I asked him to chase up a back scan i was waiting for results of and he told me it was all connected and then referred me to rheumatology.
    It is definately linked. When i get a flare up I often, but not always get small raised patched on my for fingers and toes.

    Hi TJC,

    I have raynaud's as a secondary to another circulation thing as well. Its treatable though if your having real problems talk to you rumo about it as there are 2 types of infusion and some types of tablets that can help it quite a lot.

    I think they are done once a year and one I have every 4 month and it does help though its not that present to have. I really hope you can get some help for this coming winter and that you get a bit of a decent break from it during the warmer months? Cris x

    I too have RA and suffer from raynauds. Just using a damp teatowel can start it off - hugs and sympathy to you. I did mention it to Rheumatologist but she made no comment re treating it.
