Sorry to hear you are not feeling very well and sometimes it just helps to vent. I am having a lot of trouble with my joints with pain especially my toes and hands. I was on methotrexate for 13 weeks and when the doctor increased the dosage my insurance decided not to pay it anymore because i do not have cancer. They also did not pay for cellceph. But i will have to adjust for now Hope that you are feeling better soon. Love and prayers Bonita

I wonder if the water triggered something. Last week, my fingers turned blue while taking a warm shower. It happened two nights in a row. My hands turn purple whenever I touch something cold...but blue in warm water seems weird. Was the pool heated or were you in cold water? I wonder if it's something vascular.

I tried to enjoy the snowy weather here and the cold was too cold for me apparently. I started feeling pain on a major MAJOR scale. Took me a couple of days to get over it, but I still feel wiped out.

Have you called the doc, Kim?
