My Doctor put me on nifedipine, it seems to improve my system
Thank you! I’ll read these! Much appreciated! If I had to prioritize in order of most painful to least at this point,
1- severe heartburn, reflux
2- pain and cramping in fingers and toes (my digit joints are actually starting to turn, and their really tight)
3- extremely dry skin
4- Reynauds mostly in my hands, is very painful (I use a boatload of handwarmers)
5- rapid heart rate (annoying not painful)
I have hard little bumps under my skin around my ankles; busted veins and capillaries on forehead lips and back; dry eyes, especially the left). I actually asked the doctor that diagnosed it, “what is CREST?” He said he really didn’t know. I’ll keep on looking.
