I suffer with Raynauds Phenomenon & have done so since 2005. I ignored seeking any treatment for this because of my job & the implications it could have had for my work as a frontline nurse. I was diagnosed in March with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) & I appreciate there is a very close link between the these autoimmune conditions. Raynauds affects me terribly in the colder months or if I become stressed with ice cold fingers & hands. Last winter it was affecting my feet, at times with very cold toes. I have asked for a referral to dermatology but I'm wondering if I should've asked for a referral to rheumatology or whether to ask for both? Can you help me out here please? I feel a bit lost and am just wanting to make sure I've not missed anything even though I'm a nurse!! Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you
