permanent numbness?

I am 29 years old, I have suffered with raynaud's for around 20 years. It is now quite severe and I take Nifedipine. I have recently noticed that one of my fingers feels slightly numb most of the time. This finger is nearly always affected first during an attack and the numbness is just down one side of the finger. Does anybody have any experience of this and is it anything to worry about?

  • Possibly carpal tunnel syndrome? Starts off with numbness

  • I also have a peripheral neuropathy and the tips of my fingers and toes are permanently numb. It may be worth asking your GP.

  • I get that. It's always my right index finger. I try to keep it as warm as I can. I am also now clumsy are you? But there is a big difference in our ages. I am 83.

  • Well I am 58 and have Raynaud's as well and its my left thumb that is numb and I was also taking Nifedipine. Now I do ginger tea, chai, drink plenty of water, no longer drink soda occasionally a grape one if I do. I use to be a smoker for a long time. I count my blessings and am grateful to be in the land of the living. I have also known that some people quit and still have compliations so not trying to influence what anyone should do but it impacted my having pneumonia four years ago. I believe lifestyle influences Raynauds.
