Do you medicate for your raynauds?

Question

I have a question for everyone. Do you medicate for your raynauds? And do you find it beneficial? I was diagnosed when I was 11. My mom and sister also have it. I was medicated at one point for it but stopped taking the meds when I was eh maybe 15. I’ve just been dealing with the symptoms. I’m 25 now and my symptoms seem to be getting worse.

  1. I don't medicate my raynauds. The medicins I have tried doesn't help.
    And i take a big dose betablockers every day that makes my raynauds crazy!

  2. I decided against medication since I was told the only option would be stuff that lowers your blood pressure (mine is too low already). But I'd be happy to learn whether there are alternatives.

  3. There is a cream with nitroglycerine (unsure about the name) but I haven't tried it, since it triggers migrane….

  4. I don't know how y'all feel about it. But.. the best thing I've found so far that helps me is cannabis. It helps with the pain and discomfort. It also helps with my horrible restless legs at night. I've let all my doctors know I use it and why and none have had anything bad to say about it. I figure since it's being used to treat blood pressure and circulation problems like some of the meds given to people with raynauds it was worth a try. Big plus no horrible side effects.

  5. Sheyra, is it "ordinary" cannabis or the sort with low dos/no THC that you use?

  6. I am 60 and have had it for 40 years. I take beta blockers as of a year ago and it works perfect for me. I also have restless legs but the beta blockers do nothing for that.

  7. I found that taking Niacin helps some

  8. The only medicine my dr recommended for me was baby aspirin. I have naturally low blood pressure and the medicine he could prescribe would lower it more and he said it wouldn't be safe for me

  9. I don't either because I already have low BP.

  10. Mine doesn't help but i have to take for high blood pressure also and it does help that.

  11. I was suggested vitamin B12 but that is all I take and only use it in the winter.

  12. The medicine did nothing for me so I stopped it.

  13. Yes. It definitely helps, alot.

  14. One aspirin a day helps me some when I take it everyday.

  15. Carrying a baby (being pregnant) during the winter helped me tremendously. Extra insulation!!!

  16. I am on a beta blocker and I use a nitroglycerin patch on my foot in the winter. i also use Gabapentin at night for my nerve pain. I lost my big toe and half a finger from Raynauds so i do what i can to protect myself.

  17. My doctor suggested Prozac

  18. I was diagnosed with a easy form of fenomen raynaud. The doctor told me to eat healthy, make some sport, keep my hands warm, not be stressed and she give me vitamin D. I am 21 and I have this 1 year.

  19. Never used any prescription drugs ever since my cardiologist years ago told me there was no cure after I suffered severe chest pains and numbness in both arms up to my shoulders- thought I was having a heart attack that made no sense ️. He Medically prescribed relocation to a hot spot in Florida- so I moved-
    Feel 100 hundred % better than before but not cured- 75 degrees outside is still cold to me and I double layer in clothes daily- but because of the heart damage I suffered I do have a daily high dose of omega 3 and just started my oral hemp oil (cannibus sativa) regimen now that it is allowed for Raynaurds. If you are not in the US feel free to contact me personally. The sample pack is the best selection to try first because each person is different and requires a different impact. This is medically approved cannibus and they carry money back guaranteed policy. No side affects

  20. My doc gave me nifedipine a while back but I never actually tried it. I have my worst issues when I'm ice climbing or on a winter mountain, but since the med also can cause headaches/low blood pressure I was hesitant to try it under those circumstances. I drink a lot of Traditional Medicinals Hawthorne and Hibiscus tea, which is good for the heart/circulation. Might be a placebo effect, but it seems to help.

  21. I find if I avoid my triggers, I do not need to use the medications

  22. I quit medication as I could feel no benefit from it. I/Raynauds felt no worse after I quit. That was 30 years ago, I've learned a lot about keeping warm and AVOIDING ATTACKS as much as possible..This is the KEY to staying WELL…lol, sorry if the caps look angry, 😉 it's just that I think this is so important…that we all learn to take good care of ourselves. Best wishes to you Sheyra.
