Raynaud's Phenomenon - Facts and Treatment

Raynaud’s disease is a disorder of the small blood vessels of the extremities. When the extremities are exposed to the cold, or other triggers, the blood vessels can spasm, which can result in pain, tingling and numbness.  This usually happens to the fingers or toes, but can also include the nose, ears and other parts of the body.  Fingers or other affected areas can even turn a red, white, or blue color when exposed to cold.
 

This is a fairly common disorder, with up to 5-10% of the population suffering some level of Raynaud’s phenomenon.  Treatments for Raynaud’s include avoidance of cold or other triggers. There are some oral medications, such as calcium channel blockers, that help expand blood vessels, but these medications can cause side effects.
