Conditions with symptom: 'freezing hands'
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?
How can I get rid of my warts on my hands.? Ive had them longer than 3 years and im so embarresed off them. Ive used everything from over the counter methods , to docter precriptions and freezing and home remodes. I just really want them gone. I feel so insecure anywere I go or if I see anyone at all and I dont even like my partner touching me any more . Please help me?? Many thanks from emily
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?
im 14 and for a year now i always seem to have sweaty hands i went to the doctors and they gave me a rolling thing to put over my hands but this just dried it up and made my hands sore, my armpits and feet always get hot to im terrified of injections what else can its sooooo embarrassing??
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 dupthrens and going to have surgery to have the facia removed.yes you can have it in both hands usally.from the ring finger to pinky.but do not have the needle down it dosent help had it done on the left hand.and.carpel tunnel has a lot to do with it. The needle is just a tempery fix but even after surgery.it can still come back. Oh this can.even go.to your feet the toes
