    Hi John, no nothing has been said to me  about the two being connected. I had arthritis when I was a lot younger and my weight wasn't so high. I was very active when younger and played a lot of sport. I believe that my knees are arthritic because they were 'worn down' in playing sport. Yes, the weight doesn't help but to blame it all on weight. I get so angry and annoyed.I have always been a big person. You would think my body would be used to it by now..lol My GP hasn't even acknowledged that I have Raynauds.  When I see my GP next i will ask her about the two.
