Blood Results and Worried!

Recommended Posts

Hello Phyllis, I am new to this forum( hello everyone).

 

Phyllis, interestingly enough I just got my blood results back and I have the same results you do and suffering also from the Raynaud's. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroid back in August 2018. I am going to little crazy since reviewing the results and will not get an official  diagnosis until I discuss it with my doctor that I see in two weeks. Let’s see what happens. Right now the Rayaud's is pretty bad, up to 25 bouts a day. Have to wear gloves to work because it’s not just the cold but the stress the fingers (typing , holding something, squeezing  etc).

Hi Norma,

 

Welcome to these forums!

 

I'm sorry to hear that you're suffering with Raynaud's and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and are feeling a little anxious about your blood test results. We do have quite a few warming tips on the  Raynaud's link I've included, which I hope you'll find helpful and interesting.

 

Please do let us know how you get on at your doctor's appointment in two weeks.

 

Kind regards,

Hello All

 

So I received my diagnosis today and the doctor said it was CREST.

 

My Raynaud's is pretty aggressive and he prescribed me Norsvac (amlodipinebesylate) and later will consider Plaquenil. Has anyone tried these medications?

Hi Norma,

 

I'm sorry that you've been  diagnosed with CREST.

 

I've never taken either plaquenil or Norsvac, although we do have other members who can possibly give you some first hand advice. However, we do have some threads about  Plaquenil and Norsvac, which I hope you'll find helpful.

 

If you use the Search Engine at the top of the page and put in " Amlodipine " and " Hydroxychloroquine ", you'll find many more threads on the subject.

 

Kind regards,
