I am 55 years old and 2 years ago i started feeling numbness on my left 3 fingers and snapping motion on my right pointer finger. I went to the doctor had all possible blood tests....rhumatoid, CBC, liver, thyroid, vit D, and further test for rhumatoid but everything were normal. Although, my doctor prescribe me a medicine for rhumatoid to help me surpass the discomfort and pain. But during the course of the medicine i notice feeling certain pressure behind my head and i know this is a symptom of high blood, i took my BP reading and it was like 180/ 95 . I never had any blood pressure problem before because i am very active. I exercise regularly and my eating habits are not that bad. After doing my regular exercise routine blood pressure was normal and i stop the medicine. But when i went for another doctor he discovered i am hypertensive. I told him in the morning my BP is normal only in the evening it goes up. I had my heart check did an EKG was normal but my BP is always high whenever i go to the doctor. My fingers are more pain ful than ever, i notice some deformities, feeling sensations and the redness is getting more prominent specially at the tip of my fingers. My joints in my fingers are all sore and feels like electricity passing through. The doctor said i have reynaud syndrome but for some reason i feel that it is a wrong diagnosis because all year round the same pain and discomfort never went away whether it's summer or winter, there was never a moment of feeling normal again. Presently, I am taking hypertensive medicine to control my BP but honestly speaking i really like to stop it but afraid that my blood pressure always hike up at night for no reason at all. No medicine was given for my reynaud syndrome Anybody has any idea what is really causing all these pain?
