Hi, I am 39 and I have suffered from Raynauds since I was 16, apart from when I had my children. The past few years have been unbearable. I was also diagnosed last year with Adenomyosis (a very painful disease in my uterus) and recently started GnRH injections to bring on a temporary menopause. This hormone injection has stopped the Raynauds attacks and they only come back when I am due my next injection. I've only just received a diagnosis of Thoracic Outlet syndrome this week but I have been experiencing nerve and circulation problems and pain for over a year. I have problems and pain gripping thing and my hands turn purple or white depending if I have them lowered or raised. Lying in bed causes my arms to ache, go cold and "go to sleep". The specialist is going to try physio first but if not surgery to release the trapped nerves and arteries/veins into my arms. I just wondered if anyone else experienced anything similar? I feel like hypochondriac with all these problems!
