What is Raynaud's disease?

Raynaud's disease (Raynaud phenomenon) is an excessively reduced blood flow in the fingers, toes, and occasionally other parts of the body, in response to cold or emotional stress. The blood vessels in the affected area constrict for a period, causing the skin to turn a pale, white or blue colour. The whole hand or foot feels cold, and in particular the fingers or toes.

Raynaud's events are episodic. There is normally a period of cold and numbness in the affected areas, that is brought on by a trigger. After the episode, there may be redness and a prickly feeling as the blood flow returns to normal.

Raynaud's disease often develops in young women in their teens and early adulthood. However, it normally disappears during pregnancy, because of the increased surface blood flow.
