I know that I have ALWAYS had cold hands and feet, for as long as I can remember. But I've also been suffereing from lupus for many years as well, without a proper diagnosis. So although I have always had a mild version of Raynauds it has been worsening the past couple of years and especially the past couple of weeks. My hands and feet automatically start stinging and my ears get itchy as soon as I go outside and forget about coming back inside to the warmth, it's even worse. But in general I have a couple of toes and fingers that are just stinging and itchy at times. They usually just turn red. I haven't had major color changes. I just don't know what to expect from this disease, syndrom, whatever it is. How to I know if it's really getting bad? My right foot is throbbing and stinging right now...it's hot. I'm in the middle of a lupus flare and don't have insurance till April so I'm just waiting it out, staying in bed, and taking it easy...ha right, we all know that's not as easy as it sounds. Oh well, any info, stories, etc, will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
