I have very poor circulation. My doctor and I think I have Raynaud's Syndrome, since my hands also tingle and go numb during particularly cold days during the winter. There isn't a blood test for it. I think it is a fairly mild case, but it is a little annoying.
I am thinking of going on a very low dose of aspirin to see if that helps, especially during the winter and the hottest part of the Summer, when I tend to get my tingle-fests. My doctor doesn't know a lot the syndrome, but my blood work in general is okay except for a little anemia so he's okay with it.
Has anyone tried this? I'm wondering if it worked for you. My Mom died of a blood clot, so I'm also thinking it can't hurt to thin the blood a tad if this runs in the family. She also had cold hands and feet, and was supposed to be on Cumidin when she passed, but she had stopped taking it...

I am not too familiar with this, but I would say a prayer for you anyway.
It could be anything it sounds close to diabeties, Do you do anytype of exercise if you move around you are able to avoid alot of health problems.
When taking medication never stop unless the doctor says so if it makes you worse tell the doctor so he may prescribe something else that will work for you.
