I am sorry to hear that. If it's (only) cold temperatures which narrow the blood vessels, then is there a possibility you probably wouldn't be cold if you wore more clothes? All I know is that I am perfectly warm in myself (underneath the clothes), or I would probably suffer from the same problem.
Note the section entitled 'Things you can do to help Raynaud's' - number one on the list is "keep your home warm"
I turned my thermostat down to 12degC and I am consequently glued to my HWB, have a thick coat over my layers AND an snuggling under 2 thick throws. I'm not badly off but the increase in energy bills has hit me hard! I'm not ashamed to say that mild as it has been this winter, this lifestyle is making me miserable.
So much to read, so little time.
Rosa- I am quite slim so I doubt if I have much fat. Moreover, I know I get cold like anyone else, if I am not wearing enough clothes, so I cannot accept that I am in some way conditioned to being cold.
