Hi I am new here but not new to reynaud’s. I was buried in snow during a blizzard in Boston and the national guards saved me. I was taken to a hospital where I was diagnosed with Raynaud’s. Since then I learned to keep extra warm. I know what purple and white and numb fingers feel and look like even in 50-60 degree weather! I joined this site hoping to meet others like myself and understands how the slightest cold is not for us! Thank you.
I worked in a hospital and my fingers and toes would go white with no circulation and then purple I had to do arms swings to get the blood to start flowing back into my finger tips.
I learned a neat trick when your fingers get cold and go all whitish..put your hands under your shirt on your warm belly!! It helps to get them warmer faster.
Thank you and it is great to be here in so many ways!!!
Yes it was during the 1978 Blizzard in Boston and I worked in the ER at
a hospital where the national guards took me to. I stayed and worked in the hospital
for one week because of the Blizzard. I actually witnessed others coming into the hospital like truck drivers who were stranded in snow and not found until later.
They suffered worse then myself. I feel truly blessed because of the National Guards!
