When cold weather I feel cold toes, no color change, I have elevated antiRNP 1.7 last 4yrs and no diagnosis. Onset of raynauds or vasculitis?

Hi! I have this dark spot on my toe , is this ok? It didn't grow or change , has been here for months

Unless there is irregularity, bleeding, or concerning features such as open wound, it usually isn't something to worry about.

Minor cystic changes in my big toe . What is that mean?

Where are Cysts?: Minor cystic changes could be either soft tissue or osseous (bony). If they are osseous, it really does not mean much. Most of us have some "minor" cystic changes in our bones. If they are numerous, one could be dealing with an entity like ollier's disease. Minor cystic changes in soft tissue are less common and would likely be associated with some sort of tumor. Check w your doc on this. ...Read more

Worms: I don't know why this is happening but he must be taken to the nearest Emergency facility. If his age prevents his going to a hospital you must arrange for a doctor to come to the house and try and improve the problem. ...Read more
