Hi, I am new here and I am from Greece. My English is not very good. My story with all that stuff began in 2006, with a Raynaud's attack. I was on vacation in a beach and I was swimming. This has repeated many times since then. I searched in Google and found about autoimmune diseases. I went to a rheumatologist, who ran blood tests with confused results. I have visited 4 rheumatologists until now. I have telangiectasia for 30 years. I am 51 now. I have some problems with my heart. Two days ago, I visited my cardiologist and he found 40mmHg pulmonary pressure. My world collapsed. I am stressed all my life but now I feel depressed. I would appreciate any help.
Since I have had the Raynaud's on 4 digit tips my left index finger was really bad. I have been using a variable great amount of everything I could find. Vitamin E gel, silver sulfadiazine, aloe vera, 10mg of Amlodipine, 2 days of Sildenafil 20 mg 1 pill 3 times a day out of pocket. and a non allergenic, no odor moisturizer. I tried measuring the ulcers using a caliper but the pain was more so I gave up on that. What I want to know is what do they look like when they begin to heal? The skin around the ulcer has disconnected or started peeling toward the ulcer and I am wanting to know if this is a good sign.
Hi, everybody, I live in a very warm and humid city, at least 30º C all the year. Last week I travelled to a colder city, it was autumn there (in my city we don't really have seasons) and it was about 20 to 30º C; I felt great! There people don't use air conditioners and the temperature is constant inside and outside places. I don't feel weird wearing more clothes in cold weather. Raynauds and digital ulcers are very painful and since they came into my life, I had discarded my plans to move to a colder city, but now I'm wondering what is the best thing to do. Please, tell me your experiences with Raynauds and the weather. Hugs to all. Ro
