Hi. I'm new, so would like to say hello to everyone. I'm 40 (actually, nearly 41!) and I have been diagnosed with Raynauds - I had numerous blood tests prior to a diagnosis (by a previous doctor) but I don't know if I have ever been tested for Primary/Secondary Raynuads. I have symptoms that I don't know if i should put down to Raynauds or not - currently, my left foot and leg feel numb, and yesterday both feet felt numb - anyway, I'm scared to go back to my GP - being a 40 year old woman with 'vague' symptoms, my GP keeps trying to put me in the neurotic/depressed bracket - I feel so NOT depressed! I'm a (reasonably) rational person who can be made to feel so inadequate by a Doctor. I've even thought about seeing a Private GP (I can't really afford it!) to avoid going back to my own GP! I just want to know that my Raynuads is Primary so that I can attribute other symptoms elsewhere! I guess it is, else the GP would have made further investigation? Anyway, my reason for this post was to say hello, and thank you for this wonderful group that I have found. It wasn't meant to be a whinge - but I do feel a bit better for it! Best wishes all. niky
