    Yes, this is quite normal. It doesn't have to be cold for your feet and hands to have a Raynauds attack. Have you tried alpaca or merino wool socks? There are also heated insoles that may help with the pain.

    Have you seen your GP to check if your Raynauds is primary. A simple blood test will rule out if you have another autoimmune condition.

      Hiya so sorry it's taken so long to reply! I have cerebral palsy so I assumed that the spasticity was the cause?

      Just recently the pain has got so bad in my feet that can't sit in my wheelchair for long and find it difficult even to wear slippers with my feet up. I have a constant sore spot on my right heel and I get so anxious about it that I'm scared to go out the house. I have seen a podiatrist and although they confirm Raynaud's, they do not know how to help me with the sore spot on my foot. District nurses are keeping an eye on it and confirm it's not a pressure sore. Has anyone else had experience with this?

      I feel like I'm having a constant attack. My feet are a lot more painful than my hands.

      I can't take any painkillers because for some reason, since I had surgery, I get extremely sleepy. I just don't know where to turn and I'm so fed up. It's taking over my life.

      I sympathise with you all a great deal and send you my best wishes and thanks for being there.
