Ive known for a while i had raynauds but dr didnt diagnose me until earlier this year as i went into hospital for an unrelated reason and they asked if i had it so i told him what they suggested, before that he just said it was chillblains, i saw a consultant in August after a bloods and questions she thinks its secondary raynauds i have and possibly systemic sclerosis. After the initial relief of finally being diagnosed im feeling a little down, more because of the possible sclerosis, which is seeming more possible as time goes on, ive had very bad heartburn/acid for year or so, shiny dry, skin and swollen fingers and now am getting little red spots on my hands both which are symptoms, im back again to see the consultant in a couple of weeks and going to mention these new things. I was just wondering what others peoples experiences are? i feel like this is a hidden illness most people just seem to think we get colder than they are even my dr wasnt sure what tablets to prescribe and had to look it up. Anyone have a tips for keeping warm?
