:( For the past year my fingers and hands have been swollen and have become white and numb in cold weather. I was diognosed with reynards disease but this could not explain the swelling. Six months later my face and head began to swell to a point where I could not open my eyes hence my user name. My neck and shoulders became stiff which is unusual as I have a manual job. I have also been suffering from dry skin on my face and I am not healing well from small cuts especially on my face and hands. Over the past 6 months I have had various repeated blood tests, ultrasound scans for all major organs, and x-rays for head, neck and shoulders. A diognosis has not been reached. All of these symptoms occur significantly more when I am not so active such as holidays and when I first wake up but the swelling reduces as the morning progresses.
Does anybody have any ideas whats wrong with me as this is driving me insane?
