I am a female teenager and have Raynaud's. I have been told my circulation is poor, to the extent of my hands and feet turning purple. Predominantly, this mostly occurs during cold weather; however, entering the shower seems to trigger an episode and causes my fingers and feet to go a dark grey/purple. I also develop chilblains when my extremities are exposed to such cold temperatures, which can be quite irritating. I am only a teenager, and I was wondering if these symptoms will deteriorate, or whether they may simply go away. Also note that I do experience joint pain at times, mainly around my knuckles and ankles. My fingers tend to excessively swell when cold, or when being warmed up from being so cold. Lately, my finger joints have been feeling weirdly freezing - like the actual bone feels freezing. The way I can best describe it - that uncomfortable sensitivity experienced with teeth when you breath in cold air or bite into something hot or cold - like that. Could this be early signs for scleroderma?
Hi everyone, Just wanted to say hi and ask some questions so I can better inform my doctor of what's going on and what I think my symptoms resemble closest. When I first noticed symptoms something was wrong, it was a few months ago in cool weather. My ring finger turned completely white on my right hand; it wasn't all that cold out that day, 50 degrees maybe. Anyways, ever since that day my fingers haven't been right. The tips are calloused like stiff and using a touchscreen isn't as responsive. My fingernails are white with a pulling sensation at times. I also noticed the skin very wrinkled and "saggy" at times? Changes depending on the day. Also my hands feel dry no matter what I do. At any rate scleroderma is the closest thing that resembles my problems. Is this possible to show up at 31 years old? I also have signs of carpal tunnel if that helps. I'm freakin' out so trying to get educated. My feet tend to get the same way at times. My general practitioner when I initially went said I'm fine. I don't think he knows of this.
