Can anyone tell me if raynauds is common in youngsters?
Hi all. I took my 14 yo son to the dr 3 weeks ago as he keeps getting blue/white hands. They can hurt him at times too. Anyway the Dr said straight away he has raynauds and booked him for blood tests. Last week we got the results back and she said they seem fine to her (results were 7 normal, 1positive and 3 acceptable). Anyway she wanted to start my son on nifedipine but it came up with a warning about his age. So now they have referred him to the hospital (need to wait for the appointment). In the meantime, can anyone tell me if raynauds is common in youngsters? As the Dr said it’s rare to see it someone so young. Also what can we expect at the hospital appointment? Thankyou. (U.K.)
