My fingers and toes stay purple. Rarely are they normal colored anymore. My left hand and right foot are by far worse than the other 2. It's so severe that my dr is encouraging me to consider a surgery on my nerves. I'm reluctant so he put me on pletal. With that I had no change on my raynauds and the side effects were horrible. So now I'm beginning Trental. I hear success stories that eventually people stopped the meds and extremities stayed raynauds free. If you have such a story I'd love to know how long you were on trental, how bad your raynauds was prior to starting, any side effects that occurred, and success after discontinuing Trental.
