Hi all, Two years ago I had my first Raynaud's attack, I must say it's been pretty mild so far. Soon after that I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease, and lately I have been having numb hands and feet at nights with severe night sweats so I went to see the doctor. My rheumatologist did several tests and the results for kidneys liver etc is fine, also no inflammation. However my previously negative ANA became positive. After this I had a nailfold capillaroscopy which was good, not abnormal result. Since I have been having a lot of symptoms I was wondering if anybody with primary Raynauds has a positive ANA, can this be possible? Or can Hashimoto's cause this? How reliable is capillaroscopy, have you guys had it? Doctor said I have to visit him every 6 months to see if sclero symptoms appear. Thanks!!
