Does the Raynauds affect your feet? When you first get out of bed, do the arches of your feet ache? Mine ached like that until I would get up and walk around for a while, then they would be fine.

Occasionally now, I'll get a bad ache in my arch that makes walking nearly impossible, and then coincidentally will get a bout of phlebitis in the same leg a day or so later. It's happened about three times now, so I've contributed the painful arch as a symptom of the impending phlebitis.

If I doing a great deal of clean up (say junk day) or a good amount of lawn work (raking, etc.), at the end of the day, walking is impossible. My feet just won't carry me.

I think I've learned, everything in moderation.

You might take a look at the recent thread on peripheral neuropathy. It may well be part of your problem.
