I was diagnosed with raynauds about 3 years ago but over the past year or so its been getting worse . This winter has been unbearable as I'm now getting excruciating pain in my feet and nipples, before it was just my hands.
I recently had my first appointment with rheumatology and they mentioned a few minor things but I've to wait a while on the main diagnosis, if there is one but I was told it isn't rheumatoid arthritis. I went for the appointment with the idea of getting an operation as my gp had mentioned it but i was rather disappointment to hear they no longer do it. I tried the medication last year and unfortunately it didn't work.
I've bought various different gloves, hand warmers base layer clothing etc. How do you all cope? Any advice would be great.
Also I'm feeling rather down about it all, about coping with this the rest of my life and the thought of what they might tell me at my next appointment.
Does anyone know of any support groups in scotland?
