Raynaud's Phenomenon

Raynaud's phenomenon - Better Health Channel -open

Raynaud's phenomenon affects the blood flow to the extremities, most often fingers and toes. It is caused by a sudden constriction of the blood vessels. The skin will change in colour from white, to blue and then red. There is usually discomfort such as pain, tingling and numbness. Women under 25 years are most susceptible. In some cases, Raynaud's phenomenon may be caused by an underlying autoimmune disorder, such as scleroderma.
