    Kitten_Val: thinsulate gloves...will keep those in mind!

    Poseidon: thanks, good information to have! I haven't been on anything, just trying to dress warm...but if this does get any worse it's good to know that is an option, and even as is I may talk to my doctor about it because it does hinder my ability to be outside in the winter!

    I have a pair of these and I never use them. I work out at the gym and have large, muscular calves. These boots do not zip up over my calves, especially if I am using more than one pair of socks.

    The worst mine has gotten since I was told I had it when I was probably..10? Apparently the onset of it is between 12-14ish, my doctor told me. Anyway, it's gotten worse in my ears. I used to wear a hat when I went to play in the snow as a kid..mostly because I had a really awesome hat. But now I have to wear one almost anytime I go outside for a long period of time.

    And my hands are starting to get arthritis, but it's been like that for a while. I think my feet are starting to. I didn't really consider why they would be sore like they were until I came home for Christmas. While away for college, I made the boyfriend give me foot massages all the time. But they get sore only in the area I lose blood flow regularly.

    I wear 3 pair of socks and my cowboy boots to ride. Works pretty well for up to 2 hours of riding, then my feet get cold. For around the barn I wear these awesome boots I just bought, I'll have to find them online again and post them. Super warm!

    Kitten_Val: I think mine was the worst last year and the year before...so at 20 and 21. It seems somewhat better this year, but then there's still a lot of cold weather left in the year! Last year my fingers would be white and purple every day...this year its been only if I'm outside for long periods or when I drive, and its been going away quicker than it did before.

    I got those sick thinsulate working gloves 6 years back as X-mas present and use them every winter since then to work outside (barn work, brush horses, snow shoveling, you name it). I have bad circulation (therefore all these feet problems ), but so far so good.

    For riding look into Mt Horse thinsulate - I bet those are really good too. I'm thinking about trying them out next time I go to Dover.

    Also, random update: I've been taking my new raynaud's medication for a few days and it's been AMAZING for my hands and feet. My friend went out of town for Christmas, so she asked me to feed her horses for a couple days. The second day, I went at night with a pair of thin socks and my snow boots and felt my feet the entire time! I'm so excited. My hands were completely fine in my little mittens to, even though I got really nice warm ones for Christmas.

    Down side: Since it's a blood pressure medication and my family has a large history of heart related issues, I'm developing them. I've always had heart palpitations when the seasons change (around March and October). It's really random, but the doctor said if it's not really bothering me, then it's fine. And my cholesterol is sky high genetically. ANYWAY. When I stand up or even just move too quickly, I get really dizzy. My mom said the dosage might be too high, which is what my doctor said somewhat. He just siad he'd give me the average and it'd get adjusted depending on how it affects me.

    But I'm going to be really miffed if I have to stop talking it because this is the best thing ever.
