You would do best to look it up online on a medical website. Everyone is different but basically your blood vessels spasm and cut circulation to your hand and feet. Avoid cold as much as possible. Gloves will become your best friend.
I do......... Stress increases it.... Cold.... My hands (fingers) look dead. Sometimes just one finger. Feels weird too- kind of numb. I get it in my feet as well- when they are real cold- they hurt. Then when my hands and feet get over warm, they tingle- and I get some kind of auto immune thing happening- that starts as a very red spot- then ends up drying- and flaking. It is painful - usually happens on my fingertips or toe tips. I don't know if that helps- but I hope it does!
I (female, 33 yrs old) also have it. I try to have gloves and warming pads with me in winter. Usually it is not painful, only if the fingers stay white for longer than about ten minutes. If I have it, i put my fingers under hot water asap and it disappears almost immediately. I go running a few times a week in the morning and on these days it is better.
Hi zam133. I think I have it but it has not been officially diagnosed. The tips of my fingers get so cold sometimes that they hurt. If it persists then it's the whole hand, feet and nose. I try to keep gloves in my purse, car and bedside as it occurs anywhere and the pain can be intense.
Hi, I have raynauds as well as all 3 of my children. Always wear a scarf to protect your ears & nose, wear gloves for your hands & finger tips. Invest in a good pair not a cheap pair too. I wear two pairs of socks to protect my toes. It can be painful but other times just discolored, be checked by your dr since other things now days can cause similar symptoms.
