In Topic: Strange Skin Problem On Hands.

17 February 2013 - 01:27 PM

I really hope you see this! I had this SAME problem for a long time, all these different tests and blood samples urine samples, and so on, and so on. What about your toes? When you have a flare up, do your toes vary in temperature and color (pink, blue, red, white, purple)? This is a vascular version of Reynaud's Phenom. In addition, the dry and cracking skin IS an intestinal or absorption issue, not enough oils being absorbed into your blood stream. Also, I finally got the diagnosis of Lupus last year. Voltaren gel reallllyy helps this issue, and there are other medications that can help with the blood flow to your fingers. Hope this helps!!!



Hi, Im creating this post because I am very confuse about what is going on with me. To brief you a little, Im 20 yo and a couple years ago I started having back pain along with abdominal bloating. At first I tried to not pay attention but it did not seem to get better. I started experimenting with food but wasn't able to pinpoint anything.

I started doing lots of tests, multiple blood/urine samples, colonoscopy,gastroscopy,CAT scan, and everything came back normal. They did test for celiac wich was negative. I tried a strict gluten free diet for 2 months but had no improvments at all.Tried probiotics too. I then started to read about salycilate and other chemical sensivity but even things considered safe everywhere seems to be a problem. This is just a little a brief history of what I tried.. because I tried a lot of things.. Posted Image To get back on topic, I started having weird red skin on hands about 1 year and half ago.

Here is a picture (both hands are the same,sometimes it will crack and "burn(feels hot)" the red is really like a straight cut) :

Every professionnal I saw about my problems were seeing this for the first time. I'm pretty sure this have something to do with my bloating and food but doctors says it has nothing to do (tired of getting this answer).

I too suffer from low energy and have eye floaters that get really annoying some days. The only wrong thing that poped in the last blood test ive done (got results today) was that I had low vitamin D (51 nmol, normal are 75-150) but I doubt all my problems are related to only this. I'll stop here for this post but I have so many informations that I have accumulated throught time so if you have question just ask. My question is did you ever had/know someone how had similar problems ? What did help ?

Thanks for your help, im seriously running out of idea about what to try now.

Other infos : I exercise daily, eat only organic and food prepared by me (no additive,etc,you name it..),do yoga daily to relax..
