Hi there, I'm new to this and thought I'd write my first post as I have a few questions.
So, I first got my symptoms back in 2012 after I got on a flight to Portugal and they have persisted ever since. My legs get the strange red,purple pattern as in the photos (sorry for bad quality - it is really hard to photograph) and feel very heavy, itchy and painful. I can't shower without my legs experiencing this, and walking for a while or standing for periods of time also brings on symptoms.
Since then, my symptoms have progressed and I now get red, sore feet, puffy red hands, and weak feeling knuckles. I also experience really bad fatigue - I would work a 4 hour shift in a shop and come home and fall asleep at like 6pm.
I saw my specialist yesterday, and he said my symptoms seem to point towards Raynaud's although he thinks I may have an underlying condition.
I was just wondering if these symptoms are what other people experience with their Raynaud's, how other people deal with the difficulty being in both cold and hot temperatures, and how you cope with waiting for a diagnosis?
