I’m a former navy transplantation technician, from the late 70’s, early 80’s. In addition to many other duties, I was trained and conducted HLA on person’s at NAMRU 3, Cairo, Egypt. We were looking for an association of Schistosomiasis intected person with HLA. Just saying.

I also tested ,for fun, my mother, father, a couple of my siblings and myself. My Dad was a B27, as was my sister Rebecca, and myself. Rebecca and I have complained of Raynauds for years. We’ve just lived with it. As a matter of fact, I had a bad case last evening after returning from an all day in D.C., often outdoors in the cold elements. My dad never mentioned it. My daughter has complained of having it. Our symptoms seem to be similar: palor-cyanosis-paresthesia.

So, just had some down time and decided to do a little research and see how everyone else is doing. Take care, John
