Raynauds during the summertime

Posted , 3 users are following.

Now that summer is here, my hands and feet are now bright red due to the heat.  I had helped move a friend this weekend and my hands were bright red as it was hot out and I was lifting boxes. How do I even manage this? Any suggestions?

    It sounds like erythromelagia which can exist along with Raynaud's phenomenon.

      I have read up on this. Sounds very similar. I certainly hope not. Struggling with raynauds alone is a lot to handle. Not this too! Thank you for your help. I have made an appointment with my cardiologist. There has got to be an answer for all that is happening to me all of a sudden. I am hoping this can not progress any worst then it has so far.

      Scramble thank you so very much for this reply! Raynaud's for me started in my feet. It has only been this last winter that I have really suffered badly in my hands. However, I have had the ( word I cannot pronounce!) In my feet for some time now. Thank you so much for posting this information it's really helpful and I'm really grateful. :-) PS I'm using speech text! :-)

    Hi there, I really do sympathize! To be honest with you, I haven't really been suffering with Raynaud's in my hands for that long, so I really don't know what to suggest because the last thing you want, is to call your hands down and get right back to where you started a few weeks ago! I would say just enjoy not having numb fingers that make you feel sick to look at! I wish you well and do enjoy the summer for as long as it lasts!
