Views of a unique phenomenon that happens to millions! πŸ–β„οΈ
.
Raynaud's syndrome causes an interruption of blood flow to the fingers, toes, nose, and/or ears when a spasm occurs in the blood vessels of these areas. Spasms are caused by exposure to cold or emotional stress. Typically, the affected area turns white (blood flow cut off), then blue (lack of oxygen), then bright red (blood returns) over the course of the attack. There may be associated tingling, swelling, or painful throbbing. The attacks may last from minutes to hours. In severe cases, the area may develop ulcerations and infections, which can lead to gangrene.
.
Women are more affected by this phenomenon and as many as 20% of all women of child bearing age will have this condition. That's one in five women from their early teens to their early 50s! In total, about 15-30 million of people are affected in the United States.
.
Raynaud’s can occur as a β€œprimary” disease; that is, with no associated disorder. It can also occur as a β€œsecondary” condition related to other diseases, such as scleroderma, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis. Triggers for this attacks are: Cold temperatures (most common) and emotional stress. Exposure to cold can include putting your hands in cold water, taking something from a freezer or encountering cold air.
.
Some of the most common treatments that are applied to these patients are: Topical application (medication) that helps dilate blood vessels to increase blood circulation, calcium blocker channels prescription, and relaxation exercises and techniques.
.
If you or a loved one are experiencing these conditions, please ask us and contact your primary healthcare physician to prevent any further complications. Stay warm and stay flowing everyone!

Good morning darlings, already been up for a while, and just didn't sleep well πŸŒ»β˜•πŸŒ» This pic may not be pretty, but it's not really supposed to be, was gong to post it (about a half hour before I decided to dance) πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ As a #spoonie , yesterday was an absolute nightmare as you know 😧😧😧 and damn I'm feeling like the worst kind of shit today. In bed for the weekend watching movies and eating yummy food with my hubby πŸ’ (I'll be unplugged till Sunday morningπŸ‘Œ) Point is, it took every ounce of my strength, time and gusto to do the simplest of tasks, driving through the pain. But after the tub overflow and clean up, my bleeding hair color, breaking down was inevitable. But you know what, after I took this #selfie I looked at it, with my swollen fucking eyes from crying, my swollen chipmunk cheeks (I've been adding ibuprofen to my pain med, but I'm allergic to it😯), my outfit I wouldn't be wearing out, and no smile. It made me sad to look at myself that way, angry, exhausted, terrible pain, and filled with extreme melancholy. So I smoked a cigarette, put some music on to chill, and ten minutes later I was dancing for you 🎢 Guess I'm just saying, yeah this disease sucks dick, but when you're able to pull yourself up, I mean ALL by yourself, it's one of the best fucking feelings in the world!πŸ’œπŸ’ͺπŸ’œ I know the hardships my dear fellow #spoonies , but just remember, as hard as it is, you have the inner strength and beauty within to pick yourself up too! β™₯πŸŒ·πŸ™πŸŒ·β™₯ #deannarizzo #believeinyou #deannarizzosthoughts #spoonielife #spooniestrong #fibromyalgia #fibro #fibrowarrior #fuckfibro #invisibleillness #fibromyalgiaawareness #yinzer #anxietydisorder #poetsofinstagram #raynauds #depressive #butyoudontlooksick #poetsofinsta #mythoughts #spilledthoughts #mywords #writersofinsta #writinglife #poetess #pittsburghartist #myfeelings

Infusion day. Yesterday I was a student. Today I am a patient. Crossing this line, transitioning from one role to the other, is one of the vital reasons why I am on this journey to becoming a doctor.
I will be sharing more about why I want to be a doctor on my blog soon. In the meantime, I hope you all have a great Friday. And for those of you also receiving treatment, I hope it helps you. πŸ’š

Keep your eyes on the prize but enjoy the journey. The journey may be challenging but like the prize, the moments in your journey will last a lifetime. @coryrichards

I'll always be amazed by the beauty that is Thailand. From the land to its people.

Nam Dok Mai Mangoes, bananas, peanut butter, chia seeds, dry oats, and soy yogurt... damn this is the life in this bowl. Seriously... it gives you life.

This is perfection πŸ™ŒπŸ‘Œ living life to my expectations is what will create abundant happiness and contentment. Doing the things I love, no matter the negative opinions and comments. I am working towards building the best version of myself, following my dreams and aiming big. Life is hard but it is the only one we get - I am making it great 😏

Having a really hard time with the side effects of the new medication. Today is day 1 and I left work after begging my boss several times to leave early. My doctor said to expect side effects for a week before everything levels out; honestly not sure how I'm going to make it. More than likely going to call out of work tomorrow and stay just like this with my pup. She has alerted several times and offered all the helpful tasks she can to get me in bed safely. Really hoping tomorrow is better! #servicedog #servicedogintraining #helperdog #workingdog #respectthevest #medicalequipmentintraining #notalldisabilitesarevisible #spoonie #chronicillness #fibromyalgia #raynauds #syncope #ibs #chronicfatigue #orthostatichypotension #vasovagalsyncope #neurocardiogenicsyncope #nightterrors #syncope #migraine #doingmyjob #fromsheltertohelper #dogsofinstagram #dog
