It is interesting to read all the comments and thought perhaps I could make some personal observations and perhaps pose a question or two.
I have Progressive MS, Raynauds and Osteoperosis. Swollowing is a problem and I can no longer eat dry food without moisture of some sort. I love blueberries and these help between bites. I tried a gel spray when talking was hard and it did have a limited use but is not pleasant and more than a little awkward to have to carry it around. I can also drip saliva when leaning forward which is a bit odd.
I have only seen my GP who diagnosed Raynauds. I take Adipine everyday and know this helps because my feet look dead when I am late with one of the two dose taken.
I also have some spongy moist bits on my right foot and my first question is - is this Raynauds or something else?
My hands and feet are frequently cold and when the temperature drops I have a lot of pain in all limbs, in fact my body cannot tolerate the cold. Although my hands can also be numb and go a raspberry shade when placed in hot water they function well. My main problem is my feet - they often look like the toes belong to a corpse, are very painful when they heat up with some toes taking a good 10 minutes to get to a more normal shade. The base of the toes on my right foot, all the way across is mostly white even with Adipine with the viens being hardly visible and a pale puce colour. Any pressure in this area is painful. Is this down to the MS or is it Raynauds, or both?
Not much is mentioned about feet,are my feet affected more because my mobility is limited?
Any observations or similar experiences gratefully received.
