Raynauds Phenomenom

hey guys,I’ve just been diagnosed with Raynauds Phenomenom.Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this,and if the medication is any good,and if it ever goes away.Thank you for your time.

I am curious as to what medication you are taking for it and do you have any other conditions along with it? The reason I ask is Raynaud’s is often associated with auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, auto-immune hypothroidism etc.

try Ginko and L-arginine

I know little about the condition, but did
happen to run across the fact that stanozolol (Winstrol) has been found by some to be of value
in treating it:

J Am Acad Dermatol 1995 Aug;33(2 Pt 1):254-8

and

Br Med J 1978 Aug 19;2(6136):523-5

as well as a less optimistic view:

Ann Rheum Dis 1991 Jan;50(1):41-7

However, there the main objection in terms
of undesired side effects was “anabolic problems.” (I don’t know the details, perhaps some of the subjects were women. I have read only the abstract not the article.)
