    A year or two after my subarachnoid haemorrhage, I developed 'secondary Raynaud's Phenomenon', which has a weird effect on circulation to the extremities. I've been assuming that it's secondary to my having multiple sclerosis, perhaps it could be after my subarach?! Hopefully your cold fingers/toes will settle down, and go back to normal.

    Are you attending a stroke rehab hospital as an outpatient?

      No, I was really lucky, my outcome was really good. The medical team did all the right things and, with a huge dollop of luck, I came out the other end reasonably unscathed. It did propel my MS forward a few years and my memory isn't great now. The worst thing is, because they had to go into my brain, to clip the aneurysm, I have horrendous headaches, a VERY common aftereffect, apparently. How are you getting along?

    Hi there :-), I had a Tia in December 2015, not too clued up on all the ins and outs of why/what happened but I'm wondering could it be the Meds? I've been feeling colder than I used to feel, I've put it down to the meds but not sure,good luck to you and I hope you soon feel better.

      It might be worth your while to speak to a pharmacist about your questions. If you explain what's happening, why you're on your meds and what your concerns are, they're normally pretty good about putting the pieces together, allaying your concerns and/or giving guidance about possible solutions. Try checking out 'Raynaud's Phenomenon', it might sound sound like what's happening to you. As and when you see any kind of medics, it can prove helpful if you've jotted down any questions/problems or anything else, as I know just how easy it is to forget things and remember too late. It helps many of us to keep some kind of journal, as it can help to keep records, often for our own peace of mind,

      Take care and as my Dad used to say "just keep on taking the tablets...!"

      Thanks Des,  I've made an appointment to go check it out.  It is a bit  difficult because I have can't talk clearly yet and my GP can be a bit brash, but a friend will be going with me to explain.
