Hi, can someone help me? I obviously have raynauds but i have it in my hands and feet, i am still in school which is a problem i have to overcome everyday. I have to carry my bag where i go, but it keeps cutting off my circulation and causes my hand to go purple. People ask why i have gloves on as it is, and having a purple hand and a white hand doesnt help my situation. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also, when people ask me what the matter is should i explain what happens, or call it raynauds-the problem is when i say i have a medical condition people feel awkward and then i hear them talking about me, if i call it raynauds disease -as my doc refered to it as, i will be bound to be called the disease, im stuck....what should i do?
