Hi there, I have primary raynauds and have had it since my teens (35 years). It’s got slightly worse in the last few years. I saw a rheumatologist a couple of months ago because a blood test revealed mild positive ANAs and I’m also having other symptoms like spontaneous bruising. Anyway the rheumatologist said the bruising is achenbachs syndrome and I definitely have primary raynauds as all my other blood tests were fine.
Anyway, this weekend I’ve developed another symptom, which I’ve never had before. My finger and thumb tips have all become very sore and dry. Using them and pressure is painful, particularly my thumbs. The most uncomfortable bit is at the edge of the nails. My hands did get cold on Sunday as I was out working most of the day but nothing I haven’t experienced before.
Does anyone else experience this with primary raynauds?
