emoticon to hear that you are having a bad flare up. If it was me I'd contact my doctor ASAP. See if possible medication change or up the dosage.

emoticon Sorry you're going through the flare-ups. For Raynauds, my hands tend to get super red and burning more often than the white or blue. But I've found that putting your hands in warm water, while gently massaging your hands up to your elbow area can help sometimes with getting the color back and helping with the stiffening feeling of the joints. And, also, may help to get in the extra rest your body needs and try to keep your stress level on low-as that seems to bring on flares more often than not for me. Try to cut back on any caffeine and processed foods and focus more on the veggies and other anti-inflammatory foods if possible. Has your rheummy dr. put you on anything like Plaquenil to help with inflammation?

And maybe want to give your dr. a call and ask if even the Neurontin (Gabapentin) or dosage of the med can be adding to your weakness and no-lo-energy feeling while going through your flares. Many years ago, they tried the med with me--and I felt like a complete zombie all day--so, thankfully, they took me off.

I think i spelled it wrong but I'm having flare ups like crazy to where i can barely get out of bed and my fingers are turning white and numb almost everyother day. I don't know what to do. Im at my wits end! All i have for pain is neurontin and naproxen and its not enough. Please any suggestions are welcome!

It is what it is, or is it?

Tough times don't last, TOUGH PEOPLE DO.

The word impossible is not in my dictionary.
