I have what looks like blood blisters, for lack of a better description, forming on the skin around both sides of my left middle fingernail as well as a bit under the nail. The other day in the shower the warm water stung my fingers especially that one, for the first time. My Raynaud's has never been painful before.

In the summer I have been knocking down my felodipine to 5 or 10 mg but this summer I have stayed on 15 until the other day when I went down to 5mg. I had a Raynaud's episode so I went back to my usual 15 mg. After that is when this blood blisterish thing happened. Maybe coincidence I don't know.

It does not seem to be healing and that fingertip remains cold but not blue.

This is the same hand I had the tendon friction rub in and I've been wearing my wrist brace to bed when I remember to, so as not to sleep on it and mess it up again.

My SOB is back again and I've been feeling dizzy and lightheaded at times too.

Had to move my PFT, rheumatologist, and Pulm doctor appts back from Aug 7 to Sept. 18 because rheumatologist was not gonna be in office. (This is the second time I've had to move my appts :angry: )

Well, just a little vent today.

Be well all,

Hey You *gentle hugs for you*

Sorry you are having to endure so much lately - just not fair.

Any progress on the information I sent you via the pm regarding insurance?
Warm and gentle hugs,
