What in the world is Erythromelalgia?

My doctor say that I have have Erythromelalgia. I kinda briefly know what it is, because thats why I went to my doctor because of my unnormal amount of blood flow in my hands, and they turn red like only if I walk with my hands down (like everyone do) for bout 4 sec. then they turn extremely red and begin to feel heavier. But can u explain this to me, what Erythromelalgia is? or somethin?

Do I have Erythromelalgia?

I think that i may have erythromelalgia. In the past year or so, i've noticed that whenever I become exerted, or even sometimes randomly, my hands become bright red and they start to feel a little warm. Even when I was a baby my mom said my ears would sometimes become red. I'm worried that I may have this rare disease, and want to know if there are any risks that i need to know about, such as necrosis. I'll answer any additional questions.

Help with erythromelalgia?

About a year ago I was diagnosed with raynauds disease because my hands get really cold and purple especially in the winter. However this doesn't explain why when my hands aren't cold they are burning hot hot, swollen and red. While researching about raynaud's i learned that it sometimes occurs with erythromelalgia which sounds like what happens to me. Is this what I have? I've asked doctors why my hands get so hot and swollen and they don't listen or even really care.

Really red hands and feet?

My hands and feet get extremely red and they feel like they are burning and it kind of tingles. My veins also pop out of my hands and feet. I don't think this is normal and i am only 15. I think it is Erythromelalgia but i'm not sure. Also it is happening right now in my hands they are really red and hot and i can see my veins, and i was crying a few minutes ago because of something and now my hands and arms have blotches of red and red dots. What do you think this could be?

It could also be eczema or psoriasis.. the only way to know for sure is to go to the doctor who might ref you to a dermatologist.
No reason to be in pain get some professionals to help.  (+ info)
