    Does Raynaud’s affect the eyes as well?

    Hello Dwanna
    What symptoms are you having? There are autoimmune diseases that can affect the eyes causing dryness.

    Hi Sarah

    Thanks for the response.  I have been experiencing some dryness and blurred vision lately; I was just curious to know if it was associated with Raynaud’s or not.  I’m a newbie and still researching the symptoms.  I still have about three weeks before I know whether it’s primary or secondary.

    Hi all,

    I am relatively new to this diagnosis and appear to present with classic symptoms blue and white hands and toes when exposed to cold.  However my questions is whether it is normal to experience general increased sensitivity and therefore pain when fingers or toes (for me toes) are hit or bumped.

    I can drop a pencil on my toe resulting resulting in some pretty noticeable pain,  I do wear shoes all the time to prevent my toes from turning blue and wonder if this or Raynauds is why I have become such a tenderfoot.

    Any Ideas? Gary

    I have had Raynaud’s for as long as I can remember I am 38 now. About a year ago my toes started swelling up and turned bright red at night and were very painful the pain would wake me up it got so bad they would do a little better during the day but the nights are horrible this comes and goes every couple of months, now about a month ago my fingers started doing the same thing, I can no longer wear any of my rings because my finger are so swollen and painful most of the pain is in the  joints. It is incredible hard function at work. Is this related to Raynaud’s or is there another cause and does anybody know how to make it stop please!

    Corinna, swelling with joint pain is not typical with primary Raynaud’s but can be a symptom of secondary Raynaud’s caused by a connective tissue disease such as lupus, scleroderma and RA. Have you been examined by a rheumatologist who is the specialist for Raynaud’s?

    does Raynaud’s effect the ears? I’m 18 and have had Raynaud’s since I was 14 and I experience the same pain in my ears as I do in my hands and toes sometimes its so bad I get massive headaches. Is this normal or could it be caused by something els?

    Yes, it can affect the ears as well. If you haven’t done so already, it would be advisable to be seen by and under the care of a doctor, preferrably a rheumatologist. These are the doctors that specialize in Raynaud’s and any possible underlying disease.

    Don’t take chances with your health – get checked out.

    Hello,

    I’ve had Raynaud’s for over 10 years, worsening as time goes on, with fingers being the most affected. I read that our nails could develop ridges as a result of Raynaud’s. I developed vertical ridges on my right index finger, and later on my left, now it seems a few more nailbeds are developing ridges. The ridges cause my nails to break/tear, resulting in keeping fingernails short.  Has anyone experienced this as well? I also found using  hand moisturizer really helps calm my hands down when they are hot.  I never leave home without hand moisturizer!

    Welcome to the forum, NatalieC.

    Nail abnormalities can be caused by many disorders, as well as a result of trauma. Here’s a link to a site that may offer some assistance and I’m glad to hear that hand lotion gives you gives you relief.
