Hello I need some advice please. My 15 year old autistic son was diagnosed by our GP with Raynaud's three years ago. We have never seen a consultant about this.
My son has been suffering from severe nose bleeds from a very young age. He had gone two years without a bleed but this week they have returned with a vengeance. He also had a tooth extracted yesterday and it took over 9 hours to stop the bleeding. This has never happened to him before.
My question is can nosebleeds and other types of bleeding ie following a tooth extraction be associated with Raynaud's?
My son is also currently under Gastroenterology because of his very poor apatite. He rarely feels hungry. Again could this be linked to his Raynaud's?
I am very concerned about my son at the moment and I am looking for answers to see if there might be a link between his various health issues.
