Hi, thank you for this wonderful forum! While there for another reason, I was told by a vascular surgeon that I may have Raynaud’s. He said he’d test for it (and other things) at my next appointment. He mentioned it can be treated with blood pressure medication and also a cholesterol medication.
I have no pain associated with this condition – just cold hands and feet. He noticed that my feet were bluish, then turned back to a normal color, which led him to his preliminary diagnosis.
What I’m trying to find out before my next appt, is if it is wise to go on these meds if I am not experiencing any discomfort? I have great blood pressure and no cholesterol problems and it seems the meds could do harm.
Any opinions? I want to be prepared before my next appointment.
Hello Sherree and welcome to the forum. Medication is used when Raynaud’s attacks cannot be controlled by warming techniques or sores are present on the digits. I can’t answer whether medication is appropriate for you.
