I have used this site before for research. I now wish to inqiure to all the other users of this forum for help. I will list my conditions and symptoms as follows:
Possible diagnosis of Reynaud syndrome?
high blood pressure ( I take atenelol and asperin daily)
femoral to femoral bypass
stent in right Illiac
right index finger pain, discoloration (white, blue, red) nearly constant pain
warming of finger seems to help to some degree, although not so much
increased activity, pressure, sudden contact with finger will cause pain
I believe Reynaud is an episodic event, mainly triggered by cold, I don't believe that is what's happening to me. The tip of my index finger and back to the first knuckle seem to be the main areas of pain. As I said, the pain level comes and goes but at times feels like I have vice grips on the end of my finger. Cold, pressure, and contact seem to set if off. It takes anywhere from 15 minutes of warmth and inactivity to several hours for the pain to diminish. The tip of my index finger has been always numb/tingly for about a month now. Not sure where to look for help. Anyone who has questions or similar symptoms will be more than welcome to contact me. I have Kaiser insurance, not that that's a plus; they take a very long time to get you in for help. Thanks for your time, Sincerely, Jack
