Defrosting My Fingers

Although I did my walking for 30 minutes, I never got warm. I had a wool sweater and the furnace is on. But still I stayed cold all the way. I have Raynaud's syndrome and my fingers were blue and now they feel like they are defrosting, it is tingling all over. Not very pleasing. Have you ever heard of Raynaud's syndrome? Here is an explanation:
What is Raynaud's phenomenon?Raynaud's (say ray-NOHZ) phenomenon is a problem with blood flow. Your body doesn't send enough blood to your hands and feet, so they feel very cold and numb. In most cases, this lasts for a short time when your body overreacts

Never heard of it before. I do tinkle when I take pills for anxiety though.

I wonder why you tingle when you take those anxiety pills.

I am used to it, it happens anytime, any season. Even when I take something cold out of the fridge.

I think I've heard about it before. As I get older I seem to be colder in general.

I get cold hands and feet easily, but they don't stay that way usually. I read the link, I hope that this doesn't lead to Lupus since your sister had it. I hope that this doesn't progress any further and that the warm weather arrives soon enough that you won't be bothered so badly by it.

I have heard of Raynaud's syndrome. I have suspected that some people I know have it. I do not, and I am thankful.
