  • Raynaud’s Syndrome

    If your hands often feel cold for no apparent reason you may be suffering from something called Raynaud’s Syndrome, which is thought to affect as many as ten million people in the UK. Read more →

    Im 22 and I think raynaulds is something I may have. I have always suffered with freezing ice cold hands, feet, nose! My boyfriend flinches if i touch him because my hands are so cold! They are like this mostly everyday and the only way I can keep warm is if we have the heating on a million degrees which then means he is very hot! I've been to the doctors and I have had thyroid tests (through blood test at dr's) and a diabetes test. Of which both are fine I dont have diabetes. My doctor didnt refer me to anyone else but then I didnt go back in. Another dr mentioned this to me as what it could be. I had to go back to the doctors for something else but I saw the original dr who did the tests, so I mentioned it to her. She said that she didnt think it could be that because my hands are freezing but they are also clammy (which is true). She said with raynaulds you dont get clammy hands. So my hands and feet are freezing ice cold and clammy. Does anyone with raynaulds find their hands clammy and cold? I really want to find an answer to this any advice would be great! or what specialist I may need to see!

    yes i suffer with it too it is horrid it has taken my right hand no and i cant get get a feeler they look at my body it is horrid i need help

    I was diagnosed with Rynauds 3 years ago, I also get clammy hands and the doctors have said this is because my hands think they are warm when actually they are not.

    I have had a fairly largish wart on my wrist and couple of small ones around it and three on one of my hands. The ones on my wrist have been there for around 4 or 5 years now and the ones on my hands for around 3. I tried using the freezing kits but none have worked. Is it weird, or a really long time? Should I see a doctor?

    is it necessary to use the creams (aldara) and liquids after freezing procedure for anal warts? Or will they just fall off? I had them frozen today and would prefer not to use painful meds if freezing is enough? also what can I expect after they have been frozen/what happens next? thx

    No, it is not "necessary" to use any creams after a freezing procedure. You may require 2-3 freezing treatments for the warts to fall off. Generally speaking, Genital Warts and warts alike will resolve naturally once your immune system has recognized the virus. This process can take several months/years, but with low-risk HPV (the strain which causes GW's) the process is usually shorter. After the wart has been frozen you can expect a irritation, redness or a blister. Eventually the wart will fall off after sometime.

    i have had persistent abnormal smears and have also suffered from warts....my latest results says due to the persistent results after a coloscopy in 6 months time freezing treatment will be made available to me and discussed....i am now petrified i will get cancer and not be able to have children...im 27 and just got married...can all this and freezing make me infertile??????? what can i do to fight this naturally?

    I have a really embarrassing problem and it is this. My body from my chest down to my waist and same on the back sweats profusely and can saturate through multiple layers when I'm trying to hide it. When it happens my hands and feet are freezing and I feel really cold but at the same time I'm sweating a lot. I don't know anyone else this happens too. Strangely as well there are times when this isn't happening and I tend to be the one who overheats the least but generally i can't even risk wearing a shirt because it will be wet in no time. Take today for instance, I've been at home working on an assignment and all was good and then at about 1400 I just started sweating and my hands and feet went cold. It's been happening for years and is unpredictable. I've tried anti perspirant and it doesn't work and the doctor has no answers, he's sending me to see a botox specialist. I was wondering if anyone else has anything similar. My doctor now thinks it may be an auto immune disorder but all this time not knowing and it's getting worse. Anyone any ideas?

    Speaking from experience it is unlikely you have a long term medical problem given that it has only started one year ago. Speak to the doctor about the Iontopheresis treatment it sounds more appropriate. Mind you after the treatment the saliva in your mouth dries up so I would recommend some oily foods to eat.

    Im EXACTLY the same, i get sweaty hands feet and armpits! i went to the ddoctors and they also gave me a rolling thing to roll over my hands, when i put it on my hands dry up but they go all wrinkly and dont stay dry for that long! when i have to do dancing with boys in P.E its embaressing because i have to explain the problem! PLEASE can someone help me find a cure for this, i hate it and i dont want to have it for any longer! :(

    I have huge itchy blisters on my hands a nd feet which i beleive were triggered by the sun. Is this prickly heat as the rest of my body is barely affected. i have had prickly heat on my neck and chest in the past, but this is unbearable.This time i have been taking antihistamines and have tried eurax to stop the itch, but no creams or tablets seem to work. This seems to be a yearly event as soon as the sun shines i'm not even sure if the ones on my feet are chillblains as my feet get freezing in the evening! Help!

    I have suspected PLE and i get the same symptons as you aswell as on my face.The cream they have given me is Uvistat 50 and is available in boots for £15 or cheaper on the internet, i know its pricey but it does work. I had to walk around all summer with coat and leather gloves on which is very hot but also embarrassing. Hope this helps.

    I have been informed of my having Dupuytren`s Contracture by my GP (2012), in both hands this giving me three years in which I`d lose use of both hands. Two others in the family (both Females)also have this condition. My question yet unanswered by anybody is: Why are my hands/fingers being effected in the exact opposite to that of Dupuytren`s? I am unable to bend my fingers so Why is this so, and is it possible that my hands are being effected by two conditions at the same time the second being Carpel Tunnel Syndrome? If so, what treatments are available and what are the prospects of regaining full use of my fingers?

    I have the exact same thing. Whenever i am in hot places (i.e. San diego) in their summer, my hands and feet are always freezing and i have no idea why. Ive tried putting my hands and feet in warm/hot water and it still never works. Its knocked my confidence right down and because im doing a hairdressing course in college, i thought the heat would work, but im always freezing - which unfortunately makes the clients jump :( i am 16 years old. Nearly 17. Who has any other solutions?

    I'm 16 years old and have about 13 warts and I have done for about 4 years now. I have 2 on my hands and 11 on my feet. I have tried everything! Bazuka, formaldehyde from the doctors, home freezing, over the counter stuff, and the doctors have frozen them. A few have gone away on my hands from freezing but they just come up in another place. The ones on my feet have never went. They are painful when i walk for a long period of time and I can constatly feel them, its like an uncomfortable feeling. I'm really scared of showing my feet because they are disgusting! When I get them frozen at the doctors I am in agony for hours! Is there anything else I can do? Is there any way to make the freezing less painful? (I've tried Emla numbing cream), Can they be removed by surgery? I just want rid!

    I was born with freezing cold hands. When I'm in temperatures that are at least around 20 degrees my hands look like I walked out a freezer. If the temperature is any lower than 10 degrees my hands turn purple/blue and have orange patches on top. The bad thing about this is in summer when my friends use my hands as ice packs

    Samuel, your teacher is certainly not educated!! and rude to boot.. Anxiety, keep it in check it makes it worst. Your condition is very very very prevelant. Go and talk to a Dermitologist and get a better understanding of why this is happening and the options to suit you. The water treatment with electric currents, but recently they have been placing a drug into the water and finding it gives a far better result than the original way. Try Dri Chlor over the counter specialized roll on product for the hands. Applied at night prior to be, then place some gloves on or cotton socks over your hands. Do this 3 or 4 nights straight. Sorbeline with glisterne if it gets to dry during day, as you dont want to crack your skin. Your feet,but NIVEA SILVER ION antipersperate and spray and let dry on your feet. Its is the silver in it that what stops it. Samuel, dont be embarrassed about shaking hands, just say politely you rather not and tell them why and be light hearted about it. It is not the 18 century anymore, people are more open, knowledgeable (except your teacher, cant get over that, sorry) and accepting of the differences between us. We dont hide people away anymore. Samuel get up and out and SHINE.

    10 years ago I had 48 verrucas over both feet and 15 warts on both hands it was so embarrassing as I was of school age. The doctor froze the warts on both hands and worked on the largest verruca every fortnight until they were gone. Amazingly once they responded to the freezing treatment the remaining 47 verrucas just disappeared. Unfortunately one came back 2 years ago, and I have been trying home remedy's ever since to no avail, and I now have another 2 that have turned up. Guess I'm going to have to go back to the doctors for freezing treatment again.

    I am unsure whether I do have the sweat thing, because I seem to sweat at really really odd times. For example, my feet are sweating now but the rest of me is freezing at the moment, especially my hands, but after I had a shower or bath I start sweating like mad. I also find that using any type of deodrant makes me start sweating and I am also soaked to the skin with sweat every time I walk to college even though I am freezing. Do you think I have it?

    Hi I am 15 too and I am going through the same thing! I have sweaty hands and feet all the time, but my feet are always freezing cold. I was worried when I first got in a relationship with my boyfriend that he would think it is weird or something; but I have been with him 6 and a half month now and it actually doesn't bother him :) It's funny in a way because if he falls asleep i put my freezing cold feet on him to wake him up and he doesnt like it because he can't do it back :) hehee. So yeaah, I do find it a bit embarressing at school and things which I think any one would, but I just forget about them because to me, as long as I am being who I am I dont care what they say :) Chin up, I hope it gets better for you :)

    I have had verrucas on my right foot and toes for over 7 years. Over the last 2 years they have spread to my hands. Between my right foot ans both hands I have 17 and 1 very large mosaic. I've tried freezing, Bazuka, and Wartner. For the last 4 months I've used salactol and duct tape on my hands which works then re appear after a couple of weeks. M foot I am using black duct tape which makes the foot smell but appears to work. However they soon start coming back. I'm also taking vitamins to boost my immune system. They are really getting me down.

    my hands are always cold it doesnt really matter if iam in a cold sorrounding area or if iam touching something cold they are always cold. People do not want to touch my hands because they get so cold. they also look kinda like a dead persons hand.They get all speckled and white red brownish color. The coldness is mainly in my fingertips but i also have hyperhidrosis and they sweat constently even when they are freezing.

    try to rob nizoral shampoo several time a day to your afected areas(hands,feets) It did help me although it may seem strange.The active ingridient ketokenazol although is antifungal seem to help with some of hpv strains as well.I didn t believe it myself but now my hands are warts free for over a month .Previously I used every other possible measures including freezing,acids,steroid ointments,oxygenating creams ,dermisil etc.try Nizoral and good luck

    I have had Raynauds for a number of years now. I have cold hands and feet most of the time like chunks of ice to the touch. It is very uncomfortable. All i have been told i can do is wear gloves and socks. Even indoors its like ice and with the heating on too. I sometimes struggle to get warm. Once i put the fire on and get them warm as fast as that happens they are frozen again. My daughter is 7months old now and she has had it since she was born freezing hands and feet that also go purple in colour. Is it possible that she may have raynauds?
