Rheumotologist told me that it is in connection with my Raynaud’s


Question for anyone that can help! About two weeks ago I received my results back and tested negative for Lupus, RA, Scleroderma, Sjorgen. However, on a daily basis my right hand in the morning swells up and it goes away after an hour. My rheumotologist told me that it is in connection with my Raynaud’s. Has anyone experience swelling in their hands or finger as it were fluid retention?
