My names Matt and im new here. Im 28 and been diagnosed with raynauds for about 1-2 years, although i suspect ive had it for longer and less severe.
Since being diagnosed i have been having trouble going to sleep and staying asleep and i suspect its because of my raynauds.
I have had sleep studies done and doctors say nothing is wrong, but i am waking up serveral times during the night and feeling hot or cold, mostly hot though.
I dont know about anyone else but my torso and face feel extremely hot and it always wakes me up and i have to throw the duvet off myself just to cool down. This always takes me ages to get back to sleep!
Its so frustrating i have not had a decent night sleep in years and am going crazy! I always swing from one extreme to the other getting very cold or very hot SO EASILY.
Even when i brush my teeth and wash my face with warm water i always get hot even though its winter and then when i put on my moisturiser i basically strip off with only my boxers on. Then i have to watch TV for about 10mins to cool my body temp down before i can actually get into bed.
Im currently waiting to be referred to a rheumatologist for further studies. Any help would be much appreciated!
