I have a few toes on both feet that are getting very bright red, even purple at times, and the balls of my feet when they get cold. The coldness enacts numbness, when they thaw they tingle and almost itch and feel very sore, like there are blisters. No blisters or bumpiness, but bleeding/spots under the skin do show up. My sister said it looks like I stepped in raspberry jam. The doc thought it might be Raynaud's, but did some blood work and found nothing, referred me to a podiatrist (in two weeks). My shoes are not ill-fitting, it does not appear to be something from the outside irritating, other than coldness. my fingers are cold and stiff too, and I have some weird pain on the bone of my jaw (as if punched) but not a TMJ type syndrome. Furthermore, a few weeks ago I had sores in my mouth, and have been losing weight/feeling a bit queasy, fatigued and feverish on and off. I don't know if these symptoms all are related or not. Anyone have any ideas? Lupus? Rheumatoid Arthritis? Not sure what tests to request, already had CRP Inflamm., RA Titier (RF) and Sed Rate Auto...also all vitamin work ups came back in normal range. Feels like I am missing something!!!:confused:
