Reynauds

Hi

Any reason why I am getting reynauds attacks in not only the cold weather but the mild weather as well? I am currently waiting on a clinic letter from podiatry because the reynauds attacks are getting so bad that my nailbeds are bleeding underneath and my nails are discoloured and my toes are going purple and my feet feel numb all the time. Nail clipping results have come back saying normal and doctor really doesn't know what is happening or what more I can do. Any ideas please? Thank you

  • RD is a symptom of Lupus Agnieska, have you been tested?

  • I have had ENA screens done for ANA but they have come back positive and then negative

  • ENA screen 1

    Anti Nuclear antibodies - positive (speckled)

    Anti Smooth muscle antibodies - negative

    Anti Parietal antibodies - negative

    Anti Mitochondrial antibodies - negative

    Anti LKM antibodies - negative

    HEP2 - positive

    Type - speckled

    ENA screen 2

    Anti Nuclear antibodies - negative

    Anti Smooth muscle antibodies - positive

    Anti Parietal antibodies - negative

    Anti Mitochondrial antibodies - negative

    Anti LKM antibodies - negative

  • Are they doing follow ups? You have HEP2 positive result.

  • No follow ups. I don't even know what HEP2 is.

  • This is very comprehensive: healthunlocked.com/lupus-su...

    My best wishes to you.

  • Thank you ever so much.

  • Thank you so much for that link! I've tested ANA positive a number of times, but most recently have tested negative - been to lots of doctors and not one of them has been able to explain to me what the test is for and what it means.
