This is my first post to this board. I am so lucky to have found it.
In March of 2012 I had my first finger ulcer that appeared on the side of my nail. I have had 3 more since then and am currently dealing with two, on on each hand with these ulcers under my nail. My ANA test was 1>2850 and all other tests were negative.
I have been diagnosed with primary Raynaud's and IBS and have a strange rash on my face since April of 2013. I am on nifedipine and recently was given nitroglycerin cream. I have not found relief with the cream. The pain from the finger ulcers is incredible. What I am looking for here is how to find relief from the pain so I can sleep at night.
I saw my Rheumatologist last week and was given the cream. I am about to email my doctor and am wondering what I should ask her to help the pain at night. Any help is appreciated.
