Raynauds & Diagnosed Health Issues Questionaire What Do You Think?

I have read all of your posts and questions. I see many of the same issues I have, not one or two but many. Would this community like to see a check list questionnare all in one nice little package? I know I would. I am an exercise physiologist and published research author; I am interested in seeing it all in one table. We could all then use the results of our unoffical poll to talk with our own medical provider. If you are in, just reply and in the response list your diagnosed health problems like this--



Dry Eye

Spontaneous Teeth Breakage

Numb Toes, Fingers, Ankles

Pain in toes, fingers, nose

I guess I will know if you are in if you click respond and put your list on the page...then I will comply the responses and create our own little check list for our group and others, in particular our doctors.

Thanks for stopping by & stay warm,
