I'm late to this but years ago I took meds for Raynaud's & I got heart palp from it. I've been med free for 14 years.'

There are natural ways to keep the ulcers away:

1. Keep warm. Not just your hands but your whole body.
2. Eat. I find that if I go without eating my body gets colder & I get the ulcers. I just can't skip meals anymore.
3. If you live in a colder climate like I do there are things to do to minimize getting cold
a.) rabbit fur mittens
b.) shearling (real) coat
c.) Ugg boots (I was wearing them before they became cool)
d.) Wool is your friend - sweaters, socks, pants etc.
It grossed me out at 1st to wear animals but I found it's the only thing that worked. I spend hundreds of $ on man made materials & nothing worked.

4. Don't hold glasses of liquid. I changed to all plastic at home. At restaurants, I wrap the glass in napkins.

And last but not least, you do qualify for handicap parking. I've had it for 10 years now & it's a life saver. People look at you funny but I've learned to ignore them.
