My GP suspects I have Raynauds and wNts me to take Nifedipine but I take Midodrine for a low blood pressure problem. I saw a Neurologist who wants to do a Nerve Test as he suspects I have Neuropathy. My question is what one do I have. My symptoms are as follows, tingling in both arms, my arm feels as if the circulation is being cut off, my hand goes blue/purple, my legs go numb from the knees down, my hands feels cold to touch but I feel constantly cold all over. My hands do not change colour the way it’s described in Raynauds and feeling cold all the time does not seem to fit in. Can anyone offer any ideas as to what one I have Raynauds or Neuropathy?
