  • Diagnosing and Managing Raynaud's Disease " Shelley is a 21-year-old woman "

    Shelley is a 21-year-old woman who has started noticing colour changes in her hands. She notes that her hands become white, then purple when exposed to the cold. When she warms them up, they go bright red and tingly. Her symptoms were much worse over the winter months, and were better during the summer. She is otherwise active and healthy. Unfortunately, she did start smoking recently.

    Shelley is wondering what these colour changes mean, if this condition is serious and if any other tests need to be performed. In addition, she would like to know how to better control or prevent these flares.

    Shelley would benefit from seeing her family physician who will review her symptoms and assess her for possible Raynaud's disease, and can refer her to a rheumatologist if appropriate. Shelley can also consider consulting with a Naturopathic Doctor to see if she can get some relief from her symptoms. Physiotherapy and yoga can also be beneficial to Shelley's condition.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis in a Patient with Knee and Wrist Swelling " Larry a 58-year-old gentleman"

    Larry is a 58-year-old gentleman who has noticed that his right knee has become moderately swollen. It has been like this for about 3 months. He thought it was initially because he was working more hours as a mechanic. He tried taking some ibuprofen which helped partially to reduce the pain and the morning stiffness he was experiencing. About 1 month ago, he started getting pain and swelling in his wrists as well. Now his joint symptoms are starting to interfere with his very physically demanding occupation.

    His family physician confirmed swelling of his right knee and his wrists and ordered some initial investigations. These showed an elevated blood marker for inflammation but negative tests for rheumatoid arthritis.

    Larry is wondering if he actually does have rheumatoid arthritis because he tested negative for the rheumatoid factor. He wants to be able to get back to work as soon as possible.

    Larry could benefit from further discussion with his family physician, and referrals to allied healthcare providers that could help his symptoms such as a rheumatologist, physiotherapist, bracing specialist and/or massage therapist.
