    Default Raynaud's symptoms?

    Hi All,

    I, like so many of you, have Raynaud's Syndrome along with my Lupus, but the only Raynaud's symptoms I've ever experienced are the cold hands and feet.

    In the last few months, I've noticed occasionally the tip of my nose is freezing cold. The rest of my body is warm all over, just my nose is freezing. I'm not outside in the cold weather, it happens when I'm indoors.

    Just curious, anybody else experience this one?

    I'll definitely mention it to my doctor, but I don't see him until June, so thought I'd compare notes with you all beforehand.

    Lori :P

    hello rasta.

    I also experience the hands, feet, and nose. It does not even have to be cold out...I can have it in the summer also. I sleep in shorts with socks cause my feet will be so cold they hurt while I sweat.

    Yes, I've had that, too. And my nose is a bit big.....a lot to get cold! The longer I have Raynauds, the more sensitive I get. I had a very interesting result last week in the sub-zero weather. Every other finger was white as stone - the others were normal. Kinda' pretty in a really weird sort of way!

    Be sure to keep your 'core' temperature warm...layers on your torso. It's the circulation you want to keep up. Gloves, socks, boots are great - but you have to keep the inside of you warm, too.

    I resemble these remarks..... 8)

    Only when my nose gets cold it drips....

    And yes, I've had the one finger blue, the rest nice and pink effect as well. Weird, aren't we all?
