On Tues. a new Endocrinologist that I saw for the first time said that I have Raynauds, but I don't think I do. I saw her to get my thyroid meds lined out. I told her the tips of my fingers and toes on occasion go numb ( not necessarily from the cold) and my feet is often cold and if my feet are cold then the rest of me gets cold, which is common for a lot of people, I think. Anyway, she looked at my hands and feet and felt for what I assume was my pulse in my feet. I've had a negative ANA in the past, with a normal ESR and a high C-RP. I do have an antibody associated with liver disease (AMA-M2) but was neg on liver bx for the disease that its associated with PBC and I have Hashimoto's thyroid. That's it as far as autoimmunity goes except for the Endometriosis, if that is indeed an autoimmune condition. However, my hands that I can ever recall have they ever turned blue or white like the pics I saw on the net when cold. She mentioned the capillaries in my hand or something but except for the severe dryness to me looks normal.
