Can Do Winter Sports Raynauds
What to do if I have severe raynaud's disease and in the winter I wear really, really big gloves but my fingers still turn white/purple/blue?
Every winter my toes become nearly black, i've been tested for several diseases, and raynaud's was ruled out also. What else could it be?
Still can be Raynaud: It ca still be raynauds as there is no blood test or imaging or anything that can rule it out ( a good exam and observation of the event is important ). If you have excessive sweaty feet or hands this also may be hyperhidrosis with increased sympathetic nervous system activity (not harmful to you). Would be nice to see a good picture of a classic event. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Never getting lost, using portable heaters, pre-warming the car, keeping dry, etc..., are helpful ideas. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's winter and my nosetip is red, sore, v v cold. I have chilblains, raynauds fingers, never nose. Nose has no blister/pimples. Nose chilblains?
May be: Chilblain can affect any acral part, though fingers are the most commonly affected part. I trust that you know that you need to keep warm, by dressing in layers to keep the whole body warm. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Isolated gross hematuria dysmorphic rbc. Elevated ck. Mild hypertension. Early androgentc alopecia. Had severe flu 1yr ago. In winter raynauds r hand.
The interest: Is in the right handed raynaud's. The body is normally controlled asymmetrically. If oxidative function in brain becomes inefficient, the asymmetry increases. So you might find that the left arm blood pressure is different from the right when taken at the same time by 2 operators. Raynaud is complicated but the asymmetry is unusual. A nutritionist doc might help. ...Read more
Usually not: Trigger finger is a problem with finger tendons and how they work to move a finger. Raynaud's phenomenon is a problem with spasm of arteries in the fingers, blocking blood flow. They are not directly related, but people with raynaud's syndrome can have connective tissue disorders, so may also have trigger finger. Overuse injuries, such as in certain jobs, can cause trigger finger and/or raynaud's. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
