Raynaud's phenomena and other thingies

Thursday, December 21, 2017

I'm psyching myself up for going to my regular GP... It's been at least a couple, maybe three years since I've been for blood tests and a check up. My Raynaud's phenomena has gotten much worse this winter - it's been bad but now it's way worse in my feet, and now it's in my hands. Very upsetting and sometimes it's a marker for much more serious conditions. I'm kind of hoping that eating Keto will help with inflammation (and hopefully my autonomic nervous system which controls how much and when my arteries spasm). I've asked my family members, and no one knows what I'm talking about. If anyone reading this has some tips for what has worked for them, I'm all ears!
and now for something completely different....
Going to our neighbours' house for a Christmas party tomorrow (Dec 22). It's probably a fondue party just like last year. We had a lot of fun there. The nice part is that people aren't really EVER paying attention to what you are/what you're not eating when it's a mingling kind of party. I plan to stick with my Keto way of doing things. Should be pretty easy!! (good thing it's probably going to be a sit down kinda meal where I'll be pushing around the potatoes on my plate and listening to them whisper at me 'eat me!' just like Alice in Wonderland).

    I have arterial spasms too. My arteries snap shut, stop the blood flow, stop the heart. I always carry nitro with me, and have it in several spots in the house too. While I do not have Raynaud's, I do have poor circulation and avoid the cold. One thing I can't do is avoid the caffeine. I must, MUST have my coffee.
