Hi! My name is Bridgette and I'm new to the site. I am 22 years old and I was diagnosed with lupus when I was in early high school. I was also diagnosed with Raynaud's at the same time but over the past few years I've become skeptical of the Raynaud's diagnosis. I only have the symptoms in my feet and they only occur during the winter, but when my feet are warm (especially after being extremely cold) they don't feel relieved, instead they feel very very hot and they start to tingle painfully and often it can cause spasms in my legs. My toes often get blisters and it is extremely painful and almost causes me to be unfunctional. I'm treating it with a low dose aspirin and Trental (as well as Coenzyme Q10 and a B vitamin complex).

I'm posting because I was wondering if anyone else has these symptoms. I've looked into erythromalalgia and I'm beginning to think that I may have it in conjunction with the Raynaud's but I haven't had a chance to run the idea past my rheumatologist yet. If anyone could help me out I'd really appreciate it.
