I suffer from Raynaud’s disease, in medical terms, Raynaud’s disease or Raynaud’s phenomenon is excessively reduced blood flow in response to cold or emotional stress, this causes a startling dramatic and rapid discolouration of the fingers, toes, and occasionally other areas.
This condition may also cause nails to become brittle with longitudinal ridges.
The disease was named after French physician Maurice Raynaud (1834–1881), the phenomenon is believed to be the result of vasospasms that decrease blood supply to the respective regions.
Sometimes the extreme vasoconstriction of the peripheral blood vessels can lead to tissue hypoxia. Chronic, recurrent cases of Raynaud’s phenomenon can result in atrophy of the skin, subcutaneous tissues, and muscle. In rare cases it can cause ulceration and ischemic gangrene.
I find it debilitating at times, hugely inconvenient, and often bizarre, especially when I am questioned as to why my hands are so white and cold, I now call it “elsa’s syndrome” named after the film ‘Frozen”.
I consulted with a wonderful doctor called Dr. Giuseppe Serpieri, he gave some good advice and guidance, with a spot on analysis, which has now led me to seek the next phase of therapy and medical treatment, I am grateful as he gave me the necessary and urgent prompting that was needed on my part.
For this I have written this small blog in gratitude of his attention, accurate analysis and observation and prompt response to my please for help. There are some great doctors out there, both national and international.
His dedication to attention to detail is fantastic, and has a keen interest in effectively treating varicose veins, this is in addition to a number of other treatments he offers both aesthetic and wellness purposes
