Hi Caryak, I hope you are felling better, Wishing you good luck and and hopely a spedy one on your Medicare & SSI. I also have raynauds & lupus among others and my best guest on the slured speach spell if you were in fereezing weather with the raynauds it attacks your arteries
and veins causeing them to restrick and naturaly get very small not letting enough blood flow through your arteries,and hand's feet etc, there fore when you go out in very cold weather it naturaly causes your blood vessels and arteries to restrict, becuse of the cold, therefore adding
to maby more constricting and makeing your arteries very small and not getting enough blood throuth your whole body
But mainly not enough blood and oxygen to your brain I know with mine will cause more speach problem's not thinking clearley, and my stuttering worse, and loss of word's.
Becuse your blood also carries oxygen to all the body and vital organs also.
That would be my best guess, but im not a doctor, just a paitent of lupus, sjogrens, raynuad's , cns vasculitis and etc. And have experenced kinda the same thing when out in cold.
You also need to see your dr' specialist to let them check you for it , to make sure nothing else
is going on that may be causeing it. I have loss of words, when talking but its due to my cns vasculitis.
Wishing you the best of luck on your dr's visit! ~ Diane ~
