  • She may also experience Raynauds in her nipples...just a little warning. Two of my young friends who have recently had babes have had this. Hope all goes well for her and she gets the right support....you must be worried...x

  • Yes I am very worried she also gets breathless she doesn't suffer asthma and has dizzy spells I just wondering if she has scleroderma as well

  • Bee346 wot do u think to the picture as I don't no any 1 with raynaulds I don't no if this pic is classed severe raynaulds doc seem to think so last week wen she showed him pic

  • The picture looks like Raynaud's to me but I am not a specialist, just a sufferer. Is your daughter anorexic? I wonder if that is the cause of her troubles. You must be very anxious. Does the doctor that is treating her answer your questions?

  • She not anexoic she does eat but doc said if she loses any more weight she could become very ill I'm goin doc wit her on Wednesday to see wot plan of action he has got for her I want to no if it just raynaulds or if she showing signs of scleroderma & what is he goin to do
