    Default hand pain

    Hi everyone,

    I haven't been here in a while. Had a few relatively good months, except for a couple of short flares.
    Of course, we all know that this wouldn't last for ever. I have started a real bad flare, three days ago and it is getting worse, hhaving some new strange symptoms.
    My fingers always hurt, the joints are swollen and stiff every day, but today the fingers hurt, like they were really, really cold and are now defrosting. It's a really bad nauseating kind of pain, with stinging and itching, but my hands are very warm, so no frost or coldness in them.
    You know what it feels like, when you slap your hand on a table, that kind of pain. And the itching is driving me crazy.
    Does anyone has this kind of problem with their hands and fingers?
    What could it be?
    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    I do get this quite often .....
    not always as severe as you are describing.

    I have spoken to several different medical professionals about this.
    and I am led to believe that it is quite often poor circulation
    the fact that there is heat in the hands, but they feel cold on the inside,
    is what suggests circulation to me.

    we have shunts just under our skin ....
    these direct blood flow around our skin area.
    if these shunts are in the wrong position ...
    blood will flow around near our skin, loosing oxygen, and not back to our heart.
    this circulating blood does not remove all of our toxins from our cells and muscles,


    Raynaud's is also another possibility.

    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.
