Raynaud’s disease is a condition that affects the blood supply to the fingers, toes and occasionally the ears and nose. Raynaud’s disease can be classified as one of two types: primary (or idiopathic) and secondary (also called Raynaud’s phenomenon). Primary Raynaud’s disease has no predisposing factor, is more mild, and causes fewer complications. About half of all cases of Raynaud’s disease are of this type. It can occur without any other associated symptoms or disease. The fingers are the most commonly affected area, but the toes also are affected in 40 percent of people with Raynaud’s. In severe cases, tissue damage leads to gangrene and the ends of the affected digits die and become black, requiring amputation. Fortunately this is a rare complication. Women are more likely than men are to have the disorder. It’s more common in people who live in colder climates. Use of such drugs, which constrict blood vessels, can also make Raynaud’s phenomenon worse. Some people with Raynaud’s phenomenon also have other disorders that occur when arteries are prone to constrict.

People who operate vibrating machinery may also experience this problem. If the condition progresses, blood flow to the area could become permanently decreased causing the fingers to become thin and tapered, with smooth, shiny skin and slow growing nails. People can control mild Raynaud’s disease by protecting their head, trunk, arms, and legs from cold. Secondary Raynaud’s disease is common among individuals systemic lupus erythematosus in tropical countries. Secondary Raynaud’s disease is the same as primary Raynaud’s disease, but occurs in individuals with a predisposing factor, usually a form of collagen vascular disease. Raynaud’s disease is diagnosed if the symptoms occur only by itself and is not accompanied by other diseases. When you have primary or secondary Raynaud’s, cold temperatures or stressful emotions can trigger attacks. During these attacks, there is a brief lack of blood flow to the affected body part(s), and the skin can temporarily become white then bluish. When Raynaud’s is severe (which is uncommon), exposure to cold for as little as 20 minutes can cause major tissue damage.

Causes of Raynaud’s disease

The common causes and risk factor’s of Raynaud’s disease include the following:

The exact cause of Raynaud’s is unknown.

Smoking.

Contact with the cold.

Alcohol use (in women).

Chemical exposure.

Diseases of the arteries.

Associated diseases.

Repetitive trauma.

Emotions such as stress and anxiety.

It appears to be more common in people who live in colder climates.

Symptoms of Raynaud’s disease

Some sign and symptoms related to Raynaud’s disease are as follows:

A tingling feeling or pain in the fingers or toes when they warm up.

Tingling or pain on warming.

Bluish skin.

Sequence of color changes in your skin in response to cold or stress.

Slight swelling.

Numbness.

Skin redness or inflammation.

Pain in the fingers or toes when they are cold.

Treatment of Raynaud’s disease

Here is list of the methods for treating Raynaud’s disease:

Self-care and preventive treatment usually are effective in alleviating mild symptoms of Raynaud’s.

Calcium channel blockers: These drugs relax and open up small blood vessels in your hands and feet.

Biofeedback can also help to decrease the severity and frequency of RP in some patients.

Doctors may use a surgical procedure called a digital sympathectomy with adventitial stripping (which involves removing the tissue and nerves around the blood vessels supplying the affected digits).

Patients with persistent or bothersome symptoms may be helped by taking oral medications that open (dilate) blood vessels. These include calcium antagonists, such as diltiazem, nicardipine (Cardene), nifedipine (Procardia).

Medications to relax the walls of the blood vessels may be prescribed.

    How many other Men out there have Lupus, Those people with Lupus 9 out of ten are Women.?
    If nine out of ten people with the disease are women, Then what are the actual figures of Men who have the disease?
    Are there more Diastolic cases vs Sytemic in Men ?
    I would like to talk to some Men out there that have the disease and see what their symptoms are and what they use for treatments. and are they effective?

    Men – Would you ever date a woman with Lupus?
    One of my friends has a moderate case of Lupus and she is worried that no guys would be interested in dating someone with a chronic auto-immune disease. She doesn’t think anyone would care to be with someone that gets sick and sometimes has to be hospitalized. Here is a little more info on Lupus.

    In lupus, something goes wrong with your immune system and it cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and your body’s healthy tissues so it creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause inflammation and pain in various parts of the body.

    * Lupus is also a disease of flares (the symptoms worsen and you feel ill) and remissions (the symptoms improve and you feel better). With good medical care, most people with lupus can lead a full life.

    * Lupus is not contagious, not even through sexual contact. You cannot “catch” lupus from someone or “give” lupus to someone.

    * Lupus is not like or related to HIV (Human Immune Deficiency Virus) or AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). In HIV or AIDS the immune system is underactive; in lupus, the immune system is overactive.

  3. Toe the line

    I have 3 friends that have this disorder and never have heard or found what you write of. If it was out there – I think that I would have run over it by now….

    But on the chance that someone actually knows something about this and it really is able to be verified – I am going to star and watch your question as it does indeed have much importance to people that I care about.

    Nothing but well wishes and peace sent your way.

    This is a lot to ask, I know. But if someone could review my APA paper I would GREATLY appreciate it. ?
    I think my greatest problem is with grammer errors and my in-text citations. Also, all of those citations that repeat themselves look funny to me. They can’t be right? Can they? I’m also confused with secondary citations. I think they’re a no no but I can’t get a clear answer on what they are. Here’s the paper. Please kindly review if you’d like. I’d love yah for it.

    Introduction
    Lupus is an autoimmune disease that permits the affected body to build antibodies to attack its own cells as if they were foreign. There are three main types of lupus. They are discoid, drug induced, and Systemic lupus erythematosus (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009). Doctors must be careful in diagnosing lupus since it can easily be confused with other diseases (Rahman & Isenberg, 2008). Lupus is capable of attacking any part of the body but for the most part it mainly affects the skin, kidneys, joints, heart, gastrointestinal tract, and serous membranes (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009). The cause of Lupus is currently unknown. Lupus truly is a sickness of mystery since the cause and cure have currently been unidentified. However, there are known genetic (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009) and environmental (Rahman & Isenberg, 2008) aspects that have been known to trigger this illness. On an inspiring note, there is presently a study being conducted with mice in search for the cure of lupus.

    Lupus is an autoimmune disease that is known to be a chronic (continuous or reoccurring) inflammatory illness that has the ability to attack any region of the body (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009). The symptoms of the disease are painful or swollen joints and muscle pain, unexplained fever, red rashes, chest pain when breathing deeply, loss of hair, pale or purple fingers or toes from cold or stress (also known as Raynaud’s phenomenon), sensitivity to the sun swelling in legs or around eyes, mouth ulcers, swollen glands and extreme fatigue (WebMD, 2008). Those that suffer from lupus may never have the same symptoms as another person with the disease (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009). However, the most common areas of the body affected are the skin, kidneys, joints, heart, gastrointestinal tract, and serous membranes (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009).. Also in most cases in order for a doctor to diagnose lupus the patient must illustrate at least four (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009) of the listed symptoms.
    The actual cause of the disease is unknown. However, there are genetic and environmental characteristics that could trigger lupus to develop. Many patients that suffer from lupus have a genetic association with the disease (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009). Lupus could be the result of mutated genes of interferon and the genes that play vital roles in regulating the immune response (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009). If a patient has a genetic link to lupus there are also environmental aspects that could trigger lupus. They are infection, ultraviolet light, certain drugs like; procainamide, hydralazine, and quinidine (Rahman & Isenberg, 2008), and extreme stress (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009). Factors that potentially contribute to the progression of lupus are interleukins and interferons (immune molecules). Interleukins and interferons have been shown to control the autoantibody release in response to certain bodily stimuli (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2009).
    Lupus commonly affects women, African Americans, and Asians more than any other group (Rahman & Isenberg, 2008). Since 90% of all patients with lupus are female, women between the ages of 15-50 should be tested for lupus if they portray at least one of the symptoms (Rahman & Isenberg, 2008). Also, there is an increased risk of lupus in people who already have the Epstein-Barr virus. (Rahman & Isenberg, 2008)
    The healthy immune system’s mission is to protect the body from infections and foreign objects within the body. When the immune system is working properly it will recognize the foreign bacteria, virus, or objects as non-self. Upon recognition that something does not belong, it will build antibodies against the unwanted agent, attack and destroy it (Marieb, 2009, p. 408 & 410). However, the activities of the immune system are much different when the body is affected with lupus. Instead of the body producing antibodies against foreign bacterial that do not belong, the immune system will produce an autoantibody that attacks the body’s own cells and tissues. The reason for this is because they can not recognize their own cells or tissue as self. When an autoantibody attack occurs, the autoantibodies will attach themselves to various tissues and cells (Rahman & Isenberg, 2008). When this happens the body’s inflammatory response occurs. The same thing happens when we have been hurt and the tissue has truly been damaged.

      It’s a pretty good paper but in the beginning you made an error. There are four types of Lupus. Neo Natal (babies), Drug Induced, Discoid and Systemic. Then after that you should state that your paper is talking about Systemic Lupus because they symptoms you go on to describe are those of Systemic Lupus. Your citings follow the APA guidelines. I couldn’t see the entire paper as it got cut off. Also couldn’t see your works cited page. You don’t show any quotation marks so I’m assuming that you didn’t plagerize any of the information directly from the material.

    Breast Enlargement Idea ~I’d like some feedback~?
    PLEASE READ, THIS IS VERY BENEFICIAL. I’ve spent hours upon hours reading different ways to increase breast size.
    The pills are worth hundreds of dollars, with only a slight chance of working, why would you do that? Also with breast enhancement pills, there are other ingredients in those pills the manufacture isn’t making completely known, only after doing research on different pills have I found out what is in them. Some have little bits of harmful ingredients while others are completely filled. Some are made all natural, but still have that little hint of danger, and still, are all expensive.
    Breast Augmentation is something completely different. Costing a range anywhere from $5000-$10,000. Going under the knife, leaves scars and sometimes unevenness. Would you really waste $8000 on lopsided breasts? Good idea for some, not so for others. Either not having the money, or the dangers involved. They do say breast augmentation has gotten safer over the years, but still, there is ALWAYS a danger with any type of surgery.
    Between the pill and the surgery, I’ve considered one, then the other, then back to one. I’m unhappy with the size of my breasts, and I always have. I can easily have the money for surgery, but don’t want the scars, I’m not wasting money on pills that can damage my health and have no affect on my bust.
    So, sitting and reading on what affects breast and their growth, I’ve read a few good things.
    -Estrogen is a hormone that comprises a group of compounds, including Astron, Estrada and Estrella. It is the main sex hormone in women and is essential to the menstrual cycle. Although estrogen exists in men as well as women, it is found in higher amounts in women, especially those capable of reproducing. Anyways, when you’re pregnant your estrogen levels rise, and well, your breast are noticeably larger. After reading and confirming, estrogen is the main hormone connected with breast growth. If you want larger breasts, here’s what you can do:
    Start eating different foods that have a higher level of estrogen. Apples, Cherries, Grapes, Tomatoes, and Pomegranates all have a good amount of estrogen. Apples especially. Alfalfa has high traces of phytoestrogens which is called dietary estrogens. Which means it acts like estrogen. Soy is also very high in estrogen, but a warning, soy extracts are BAD for you. If you are going to eat soy, cook your own soy, no soy extracts. Protein laden foods such as: fresh milk, fish, soy products, nuts and seafood, are also said to increase bust. Very last, flaxseed oil! Flaxseed oil is high in fatty acids and omega 3, 6+9. Very good to take for breast enhancement. And if in the end you don’t see you bust grow, flaxseed oil capsules also:
    Lower cholesterol, protect against heart disease and control high blood pressure, Counter inflammation associated with gout, lupus and fibrocystic breasts, Control constipation, haemorrhoids, diverticular disorders and gallstones, Treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, sunburn and rosacea, Promote healthy hair and nails, Minimise nerve damage that causes numbness and tingling as well as other disorders, Reduce cancer risk and guard against the effects of ageing, Treat menopausal symptoms, menstrual cramps, female infertility and endometriosis, Fight prostate problems, male infertility and impotence.
    All the food I’ve listed are healthy, and are not harmful to your health. Also, if you plan to change your diet, as with any diet do not do it in an extreme way. Slowly work the different foods into your already existing diet, this is best for you and your body.

    UNUSUAL SYMPTOMS- NO RIGHT DIAGNOSIS?
    MY DAUGHTER (24 YEARS OLD NOW) HAS BEEN SUFFERING FOR 2 YEARS WITH BACK PROBLEMS, (STARTED AS A LOW BACK PAIN) THAT EVENTUALLY AFFECTED HER KNEES, LATER ON… HER RIGHT HIP, GROIN, PELVIS, NECK AND SHOULDERS…. AND NOW BOTH ARMS AND HANDS GET TINGLING AND ALSO NUMBNESS!
    I HAVE SPENT THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN MEDICAL BILLS…. SHE RECEIVED SPINAL DECOMPRESSION (LIKE 50 TREATMENTS) FOR A MILD ANNULAR TEAR OF THE LUMBAR SPINE AT THE LEVEL OF L4 AND L5….. THE SPINAL DECOMPRESSION WAS DONE ON A MACHINE CALLED THE DRX9000…
    SHE HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED HAVING A TILTED PELVIS, HAVING A LEG LENGTH DISCREPANCY, ETC….SHE HAS BEEN GIVEN ORTHOTICS TO WEAR, AS WELL AS A HEEL LIFT…. AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAS HELPED HER…. I BELIEVE THE MILD ANNULAR TEAR IS ALREADY HEALED…… BUT SHE CONTINUES EXPERIENCING NUMBNESS AND TINGLING DOWN THE BACK OF HER THIGHS ….. “ESPECIALLY” EVERY TIME SHE TRIES TO SIT….
    SHE HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO SIT FOR OVER A YEAR NOW….WE HAVE SEEN NEUROLOGISTS, SEVERAL CHIROPRACTORS, PHYSICAL THERAPISTS, ACUPUNCTURISTS, MASSAGE THERAPISTS, DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE, ACUPRESSURE, ETC, ETC, YOU NAME IT!!!
    SHE HAS HAD MRI’S DONE ON HER NECK, PELVIS, HIPS, AS WELL AS X-RAYS…. SHE HAS BEEN CHECKED FOR SACROILIAC JOINT DYSFUNCTION, AND NOTHING LOOKS ABNORMAL.
    UP TO THIS DATE WE DON’T KNOW WHY SHE IS HAVING ALL THOSE SYMPTOMS, AND ESPECIALLY GROIN AND HIP/PELVIS PAIN… SHE HAD BLOOD TESTS DONE FOR , JUVENILE ARTHRITIS, LUPUS, LYME DISEASE, ETC, ETC….EVERYTHING COMES BACK NEGATIVE….
    SHE HASN’T HAD AN ACCIDENT OR SPORT INJURY, SHE HASN’T FALL ON HER BACK EITHER……”THIS” ALL STARTED WITH LOWER BACK PAIN THAT PROGRESSIVELY AFFECTED OTHER PARTS OF HER BODY…. MANY DOCTORS HAVE TOLD ME THAT SHE HAS A TILTED ROTATED PELVIS…. AND A LEG LENGTH DISCREPANCY… BUT YET “NOT ONE DOCTOR” HAS BEEN ABLE TO HELP HER…SHE LIVES IN CONSTANT PAIN…AND THE RIGHT SIDE OF HER BODY SEEMS TO BE MORE AFFECTED BY THIS….BEFORE ALL OF THIS SHE WAS A HEALTHY COLLEGE STUDENT WITH NO HEALTH PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER!…HER LEG LENGTH DISCREPANCY IS ONLY 1CM… NOT THAT MUCH!
    .IT’S JUST VERY STRANGE THAT A YOUNG WOMAN WOULD GET ALL OF THIS PAIN AT ONCE…..TINGLING OF BOTH ARMS AND HANDS MIMICKING CUBITAL AND CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME….. SHE ALSO SUFFERS FROM A STIFF NECK AT TIME…I TRULY BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A CHAIN REACTION FROM HER PELVIS BEING MISALIGNED AND PERHAPS THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH HER SACROILIAC JOINT THAT NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO DETECT……

    I’M IN DESPERATE NEED OF AN OPINION
    I wanted to add that she has been checked for neurological disorders and she doesn’t fit in that category, as well as Rheumatoid Arthritis… A few doctors agree that she has a rotated (anteriorly) pelvis and it could be the main reason for all of her problems, tight psoas muscles, etc…. I haven’t been able to find a doctor that truly knows how to manipulate the pelvis back into place, if that is the problem….

    What can cause kidney damage or failure in a 22 year old?
    After seeing a regular doctor and kidney specialist we have found that my kidneys are not functioning properly. There is protein and blood in urine and a low creatinine clearance level in urine. I don’t know the results of the blood yet. Symptoms are mainly frequent urination, frequent hunger and thirst, headaches, weight loss, fatigue and slight to moderate kidney / lower back pain. We have already ruled out diabetes.

    I am an otherwise healthy 22 year old woman with two children. Never had any major abnormal test results in my life. The major diseases that pop up (besides diabetes) are polycystic kidney disease and lupus.

    The kidney specialist is ordering an ultrasound and biopsy of my kidneys within the next 2 months. I had a CT scan done but she kind of avoided my question when I asked if she found anything. All she said was there were no stones found. I go back and see her next week.

    What the heck can possibly be wrong?
    I am very petite but have never had any eating disorders. I take Tylenol once a month, if that. I am not an alcoholic lol.

    Antiphospholipid Syndrome

    Antiphospholipid Syndrome is a disorder in which the body recognizes certain normal components of blood and/or cell membranes as foreign substances and produces antibodies against them. This disorder is non-infectious which means that this disorder can’t be passed from person to person by contact. Pregnant women are more prone to get this disorder than anyone else, and African Americans, and Hispanics but like other disorders anyone can get Antiphospholipid Syndrome

    The symptoms and characteristics of this disorder are not hard to spot. Some symptoms of the disorder are veins or arteries of the arms or legs may cause pain, numbness, tingling in the feet. Arteries of the heart may cause chest pain or heart attack, the individual with this disorder may have heart murmur. In pregnant women with Antiphospholipid Syndrome, miscarriage can occur prior to 20 week of gestation, while pre-eclampsia is reported to occur after that time. Blood vessels of the skin – may cause painful bruises (purpura) or a condition called livedo reticularis. Blood vessels of the brain – if a clot cuts off blood supply to a part of the brain, this causes a stroke. An individual with APS may also experience migraine headaches or seizures.

    There is no cure and there is no way to avoid getting this disorder. There are many treatments for this disorder. But the most successful treatment is anticoagulant therapy. This is usually successful in preventing further blood clots. This disorder can severely damage the body in many different ways because good cells attack other good cells and that causes chaos through the body. And when a weak or strong pathogen enters the body it can be deadly.

    Some other information about Antiphospholipid Syndrome is, 1-5% of the world population is known to have this disorder, and 40-50% of patients with lupus also have APS. One third of strokes occurring in younger people (under the age of 50) are due to Antiphospholipid Syndrome. One third of patients with Antiphospholipid Syndrome are said to have lupus, and or Raynaud disease. APS is more common in young to middle-aged adults; however, it also manifests in children and elderly people. Disease onset has been reported in children as young as 8 months.

    This disorder is very rare and not very deadly but this disorder can still affect your way of life, the way you think, and can make you dizzy and other things. My mom has this disorder and sometimes it’s hard to get around and such, but you can still fight back by eating a healthy diet and seeing a special doctor called a Rheumatologist, this doctor specializes in these types of rare disorders.
