Re: [RC] Painful, cold fingers - Carolyn Burgess

I have Reynaud's, all of my doctors know I have Reynaud's and how come this is the first time I've heard that caffeine is a vasoconstrictor?  I don't drink alot of coffee due to other medical issues (acid reflux), they tell me to get off the coffee for that but not the Reynaud's?
