My Raynaud's is pretty mild, I have no ulcers. But I not only have it in my fingers but my thumbs also.
Does any one else get Raynaud's on their thumb? I was reading that Raynaud's is usually on the fingers and spares the thumbs .
Well it is just like me to be odd. Just doing an informal survey here -- anyone else with Raynaud's of the thumb?
I don't have any skin involvement but I have trouble with my cuticles. They get overgrown and hard with visible tiny hemorrhages on them. They will also get painful splits on the sides. My right thumb ( the side my Raynaud's is the worst) has the worst cuticle problems. The cuticles will grow high up on my thumbnail, then get some tiny dot hemorrhages that start out like bright red dots or streaks and then turn to dark brown or maroon. Then my cuticle will peel way down my thumb and then the cycle will start all over again. Well this time the cuticle does not seem to be growing back. I have no cuticle and the lunula seems rather reddish at the bottom -- not sure if it is always that way because usually the cuticle has overgrown the lunula so much so that only a little white is showing. On my fingers no lunula is visible only the thumbs. I have 2 questions.
Does anyone else have peeling or splitting cuticles -- or no cuticles at all like on my thumb right now?
