Have hot flashes in toes. Have Ankylosing spondylitis. Had Renaud's blue fingers. Reason?

HI\\I have ankylosing spondylitis (an autoimmune disorder), which I currently don t take any medication for, not even pain killers as it is well controlled with diet . Lately I have been having not unpleasant hot flashes in my toes, usually only one at a time. Do you have any idea what is causing this. My AS has never been better. I have in the past had Raynaud s blue fingers when I get cold but haven t had any of that since last winter. Cheers,Cherie

first of all u have to start ur DMRD therapy .. it will take care of ur disease and slow down the effect of the AS on the body ..
hot flashes should be checked by physician as it may not be related to the present AS as AS is disease of larger joint .and for finger avoid working in cold temp below 5 degree
also do ur hand exercises regularly

I have primary Raynaud s (20years). I have had migrains for 15 years. Am now having angina (past 3years). When my angina is acting up my ST segment is depressed & sometimes my Twave inverts. Tredmill test both 3y ago and now show ischemia in anterior wall of right atrium (I m pretty sure that is what cardiologist said) - anyway no change in 3 years. I think that these 3 things must be related. They are all vasospastic activities. Do you know of any disorder where these three are involved?

Hi, After taking a shower I noticed that my right handed thumb had two spots of an extreme white as if I had ready to peel skin !, once I put lotion on the big one disappeared but still have the small one. I immediately searched for it in the Internet & all I got was something called Raynaud syndrome , but I m completely sure that s not it because it was only two small spots & not the whole finger & the big spot disappeared once I put lotion on! Any ideas of what it might be ?? Thank you!

I'm 39, slender, petite build. I've had Raynaud's and migraines for 15 years. For 6 years I lived in Louisiana and had minimal issues with the Raynaud's. I moved back to Ohio a year and a half ago. This past winter was rough. My doctor put me on calcium channel blockers which sort-of helped. Over the past 10 weeks I have developed lots aches and stiffness in my joints- primarily my fingers, wrists and toes (numbness and pain in toes), but also in my knees and elbows and other places. I've also had some unusual muscle tiredness - for example sometimes my arms get tired when I lift them to put something in the cupboard or my legs get tired walking up the stairs. I went to my doctor the end of May. She did bloodwork, it all came back negative. But, she still recommended I see a rheumatologist. I have an appointment the end of July. Last week I started having some new issues. Some concerns with my breasts. I felt like the nipple was denting in slightly on one side and the breast seemed flatter above that area. But, the nipple will also go back to normal with minimal stimulation. So, I thought maybe I was imagining it. Today, the area above my breast is sore- on the rib bone. Sore to the touch. I'm not aware of doing anything that could have stretched a muscle. Anyway, I'm wondering if any of this could be connected? If I should go see my primary doctor again or just wait till I see the rheumatologist the end of the month?
