Over 4th of July weekend I bumped my little toe on our boat and didn't think I had hit it that hard...the next day it was swollen and all purple and could hardly walk on it. Well, the purples gone but the dang thing still hurts, not quite as bad as when I first did it and it is still alittle swollen. Now I know I didn't break it but wondered if because of having Raynauds and Crest Syndrome it is healing very very slowly. Does anyone with this same condition know if this is possible? Do your digits heal slower because of less circulation? Hope these aren't stupid questions.

My DH did the same thing on our boat on the same date , except he broke his toe.
It's the one second from the little one. The ER did'nt plaster it, they said it would have to heal on it's own. The purple has gone but it's still swollen and sore.
Sorry I don't have any answers to you question, but I thought It may make you feel better that your not alone with a sore toe.

From my experience..YES....it takes fingers & toes longer to heal with Raynaud's. I do have Raynaud's, however, did not realize it until AFTER I had surgery for ingrown toenails. My foot dr. could not figure out why my toes weren't healing & why they kept getting infected. Lo and behold, several weeks later, I was diagnosed with Raynaud's! I am having foot surgery next week and my podiatrist would only do the surgery in the summer for fear of slow healing in cooler weather. I also find that any cuts on my fingers take forever to heal (especially in the winter). It's very frustrating! Sure hope your toe feels better soon!

I wanted to reply to your post - I have Raynaud's and Crest Syndrome - I can't answer your question though - I have been blessed since I got the Raynaud's diagnosis - I haven't hurt my feet or hands and that's been 16 years ago. I'm just sending you hugs and good wishes.

Zebra...my husband kept telling me I broke it, but I've never had a broken bone in my body so didn't know what it would feel like. I just know I been wearing sandals alot. And my mother told me if it was they can't do anything for it anyway, so I thought what would be the use in seeing a doctor.

Bowlinggrl....I am very interested to know more about the Crest Syndrome symptons you have. After I was diagnosised he didn't tell me much of what to expect. I've read alot but don't like what I read. I've had Raynaud's for about 3 yrs. and the Crest Syndrome is new to me. I have days I feel awful, like every joint in my body aches. My finger tips will hurt really bad, my fingers swell up like little puff balls and they are really hard to bend escpecially in the morning when I get up. I have acid reflex a lot. I am hypothyroid so I am cold blooded which doesn't help with the Raynaud's. I was at a friends house and their air conditioning was blowing right on me and I was too embarrassed to say anything so by time I left my toes, fingers and some of my legs and arms were numb. Do you see a Rheumetologist? And what were you told to expect in the future?

Roz5...I am also interested in what your doctor has informed you of the Raynauds. Good luck with your surgery.

Thank you for your replies...they are very helpful and informative. I welcome any information I can get, I feel so confused and need more information on this.
