Reynaud's - how do YOU manage the symptoms?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

In addition to celiac & rheumatoid arthritis, I also have Reynaud's syndrome. Mine occurs mostly with my fingers. Sometimes my toes get affected if it's really cold. 

The grocery store is the worst for me. I hardly ever go in the grocery store without the Reynaud's hitting my fingers. I've tried wearing winter gloves but they don't seem to make one shred of difference. I've also tried using the Hot Hands hand warmer packets in each pocket & putting my hands in my warm pocket with the hand warmers as often as possible. That still doesn't seem to provide much if any relief & doesn't prevent it happening in the first place.

What do you do to get relief?

Thank you tessa25! I will try that. So a key is keeping your core warm? I had read somewhere that keeping your wrists warm does the trick & I tried that by using some wrist warmers under the gloves that come up over my wrists but that still didn't help. I keep looking at heated gloves. They cost $45 + up which I would do if I could be sure they would work.

Evening primrose oil and omega 3 fatty acids (fish oil) will help both rheumatoid arthritis and reynaud's.  

Getting one's vitamin D level up to 70 ng/mol or above will help reynaud's, as will supplementing magnesium, niacin and B6.  

I have Reynaud's since childhood and these things have helped me.
