Raynaud syndrome, also known as Raynaud’s phenomenon, is a medical condition in which spasm of arteries causes episodes of reduced blood flow.
Typically the fingers, and less commonly the toes, are involved. Rarely, the nose, ears, or lips are affected.
The episodes result in the affected part turning white and then blue. Often, there is numbness or pain.
As blood flow returns, the area turns red and burns.
The episodes typically last minutes but can last up to several hours.
Raynaud’s disease, smaller arteries that supply blood to your skin narrow, limiting blood circulation to affected areas (vasospasm).
Women are more likely than men to have Raynaud’s disease, also known as Raynaud or Raynaud’s phenomenon or syndrome.
It appears to be more common in people who live in colder climates.
Episodes are often triggered by cold or emotional stress. There are two main types: primary Raynaud’s, when the cause is unknown, and secondary Raynaud’s, which occurs as a result of another condition. Secondary Raynaud’s can occur due to a connective tissue disorder, such as scleroderma or lupus, injuries to the hands, prolonged vibration, smoking, thyroid problems, and certain medications, such as birth control pills. Diagnosis is typically based on the symptoms.
