I have been suffering with this for the last three months, last week was the only time I have been ok and not had goosebumps. I don't know what is causing this but I've never felt like this prior to getting RA so I thing it may be connected.

Hiya June. I'm always cold except when having hot flushes. My feet & hands are my problem too & though don't go blue are mostly cold. In fact throughout this warm spell I've still been having to use my electric foot muff to get some feeling back & to ease the soreness. Has your GP seen them? It could be RD related or maybe a circulatory problem. Either way next time you're there I'd have him take a look at both.

Love the pic, it's so ethereal! Don't recognise it though? x

Have your thyroid checked to see if your metabolism is wrong. Can easily be that as a cause. It is just a blood test and if you have to have one for something else ask for this to be added.

Yes I get this - been told by GP that along with burning sensation in my soles and palms and strange feeling as if my legs are wet this is secondary Raynaud's. I've even tried a treatment called Nifedipine but failed to tolerate this drug too. This was confirmed by a connective tissue specialist recently - however I also suffer from Hypothyroidism and am becoming increasingly of the view that my thyroid problems and RD are all interlinked where my circulation problems are concerned.
