My Raynaud's has been getting progressively worse over the last few years and after several recent trips to the doctors we've eventually reached the conclusion that I will need some medication to get me through the next winter. I've always tried to manage without in the past but it's got to the stage where the frequency and severity of the attacks is now having a big affect on my life.
I've asked the GP a few times whether I need to be referred to a Rheumatologist but she seems unwilling to go down this route, telling me that it wouldn't serve much purpose as they will only tell me that I've got Raynaud's, which I already know.
Would be interested to hear whether other people with Raynaud's rely on checks with their doctor to manage the condition, or if you regularly attend a rheumatology clinic for monitoring and advice?
(p.s. hope you've been enjoying the sunshine over the past couple of days - bliss!!)
