The times, they are a-changin’ (and bringing new syndromes)
When are symptoms due to a medical condition, and when are they just a part of life? That’s the question that came to mind as I read about “computer vision syndrome.” So, what is a syndrome, anyway? Before considering the health hazards of working long hours in front of a computer screen, it’s worth asking what a syndrome is. In medicine we often use the word syndrome to describe a group of features, such as symptoms, examination findings or test results, that tend to occur together but without a clear enough understanding of their cause to be considered a specific disease. Some syndromes are descri...

Are Your Hands Almost Always Cold? You Might Have Raynaud's Syndrome
My hands are cold almost all of the time. I get cold easily and have a hard time staying warm. When I touch someone, I often have to apologize for having "zombie hands." It has nothing to do with metabolism or body fat. I noticed this issue when I was 14. It was the middle of winter and my bestie and I were totally nuts about the Ramones. We went to a club where they were playing and wanted to be first in line (like in the movie "Rock n Roll High School") so we showed up several hours before the doors opened to prove our loyalty. We were wearing dresses and thick tights. It was winter in NY. My friend, ...

Cold hands: Could it be Raynaud’s?
I used to enjoy cold weather and cold-weather activities. Not anymore. These days I find it harder and harder to keep my hands warm when I’m outside, even with an excellent pair of gloves. Sometimes my fingers turn white and become numb. Those are the hallmarks of Raynaud’s syndrome (or disease or phenomenon). Named after the French physician who first described it in 1862, Raynaud’s is a problem in the body’s arteries. In most people with Raynaud’s, small arteries that bring oxygen-rich blood to the fingers spasm and close down in response to cold or stress. This reduces or cuts off blood flo...
