Chilblains etc

Post by kirolak » Sun Jul 14, 2019 11:35 am

I've developed chilblains :oops: on my right hand. . .they are really painful, allied to what is apparently "cold urticaria" ?!

My RH is ALWAYS hot, & LH ALWAYS cold, rather weird. . it is around 10 or 11 degrees C here in "winter" (ranges from about 4 degrees up to 22 later !) I really dislike hot weather, get hemiplegic migraine attacks ( in my case, total paralysis on my right side) whenever I feel too hot. . . if anyone has any advice, I'd be very grateful. (I take daily meds against the HM)

Try vibration therapy. I underwent chemotherapy about 10 years ago and the tips of my fingers feels numb. I bought a vibrating ball that I use before practicing and it helps.

That is very interesting, I will look out for one, thanks!

PS I do have a good neurologist, but he isn't interested in chilblains :lol:
