      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Raynauds Syndrome

Recommended Posts

Calcium channel blockers can be extremely dangerous, because of it's side effects. For one, I did not see much of a benefit after struggling with my out of control Raynauds after my appendectomy. And the blood pressure drop can be radical during periods of physical exertion, even leading to blackouts. I don't thin one should take such risks with ice climbing.

Raunauds is considered an auto-immune condition, so approach should reflecting the fact. What worked for me, and what allowed me to resume my winter activity were diet changes, and lowering my stress.
