I am now experiencing amy 3 episode of acute blue finger over the last 8 months. My GP finally diagnosed Reynaulds but is confused as to the episodes I am experiencing with my fingers.
The first one was severe it was my middle finger that went blue then numb, I was only getting a few hours sleep a night due to the pain. The doctor just kept giving me antibiotics, it cleared after 3 month.
Within a week I felt the familiar symptoms and yes it had moved to the index finger of the same hand. I was in so much pain I went to the walk in centre at the hospital. A surgeon cut a whole in tip of finger to squeeze out what he thought was pus which then went on to become infected and my nail dropped off. Needless to say this did nothing to help my situation. This finger took four months to heal.
A month later and it is in the middle finger of my left hand, which is now a deep blue and I'm not sure if it is more painful than the other two or I just can't cope with it anymore, it is getting me down and making me quite emotional. GP has said they don't want to give me another course of antibiotics (would be 10th course) as they don't work - no s**t Sherlock 😡!!! He has now put me on naproxen and said if it is not better in a week he may send me to a surgeon. Shall we see what the odds would be that it will be gone in 7 days 🤔. I am at my wits end but don't know what to do or where to go.
Any advise would be brilliant.
