Besides Psa, Does Anyone Else Also Have Raynaud's?

Raynaud's is an Autoimmune Disease that mostly targets the hands and wrists, with immediate and extreme pain when exposed to cold.
Anybody else out there?

Yes, I have Raynaud's. It was diagnosed at 17 years old, the PSA not until I was 48. Mine affects my toes as well as fingers; I moved to the south US 20 years ago at the recommendation of the doc. That has helped tremendously.

I also have Raynaud's. I also was diagnosed many decades ago. It's gotten more severe as I get older. It affects my fingers, toes, nose, ears, lips. I run, bike, hike, and in cold weather have to now wear a nitro patch. It just takes some careful planning to avoid having an episode, and in cold weather frostbite is a real consideration. In the summer I'm fine though, even if I go into ice cold water to swim. Air conditioning is a problem for me as well..I'd rather be too warm than too cold.
