Lizzie - is your working environemnt also quite cold?

I tend to get it much more in winter.

dont' credit me for the link! smile. I do have a bit of Raynaud's though, does sound like a general circulation insufficiency.

Thanks for replies. I'll look at that linklljkk thank you.

That sounds rotten for you morebeta. I'm wondering if it's linked to keyboard work, as I have an achy wrist too. Also keep getting v swollen feet/ ankles which is weird, so am wondering if it's a circulatory thing.

Cold be Raynauds.

I also get a problem when typing too much with tension in my shoulder that stops blood flowing out of my thumb/fingers so they go numb and swell up. Then the skin cracks. Starts with my thumb then gradually spreads to my index and middle finger.

Could it be Raynaud's? I've linked to some more information on symptoms etc.

You know when you've been in the bath or done lots of washing up, and your finger tips feel all wrinkly? My fingers have felt like this permanently for several days, and a bit prickly and numb. They don't look wrinkled, and haven't been in water more than usual, but they feel like they have.

I know it's by no means the worst health problem in the world, but it's really uncomfortable. Any ideas what might be causing it/ how to get rid of it?
