I have been diagnosed for nearly 18 years now and have the kenalog injections every six months to keep my symptoms under some sort of control. I also have Raynauds and Scleroderma. For the last three or four years I have been getting severe cramp in my feet, yes it occurs when they get cold but from about September to June I also get it every night between 6 and 7pm even if feet still encased in warm boots etc. The pain can be so bad that I cry with it.
I've sldo for the last few years had times when both hands get either a trigger fingers effect on the index finger or a tightening of the muscle up the outside edge of my hand - so tight you can see the skin all pulled inwards. This has been annoying but not concerning. Recently I have found that the trigger finger effect is happening more and more, even simple things like stirring a saucepan while cooking dinner it is constantly locking and the muscle contraction is happening more too.
I was wondering if anyone else gets these effects. It can't be I'm due my steroids as I only had my injection in September. If anyone has any ideas would be glad to hear them. Thank you.
