Nancy H: Raynaud's

My nose is affected and just recently my hands.

Red Rose for Nancy, by Sherrill Knaggs, ISN Artist I have just recently been diagnosed with Raynaud's. My nose is affected and just recently the tops of my hands burn and are cold.

My major concern is my nose. I am now on my third different blood pressure medicine. Nothing seems to help the burning and cold. It is very sore inside of my nose.

I also have the beginning stages of Crohn's, panniculitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and now Raynaud's.

I started Remicade treatments about three weeks ago. I have tried several blood pressure medications that were of no help. Can anyone out there please help me? Thanks.

~ Update 02-25-06 ~

I am doing a little better on my third blood pressure medication. I am seeing my rheumatologist on Wednesday. I will then have a consultation and my third Remicade treatment. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
