What Is Raynaud's Disease?
Did you know there's a medical reason behind your painful, cold
fingers and toes? The likely cause, Raynaud's Disease or
Raynaud's Phenomenon, is a disorder of the blood vessels which
can turn your extremities white and painfully cold whenever it is chilly.
Normally, exposure to cold temperatures results in the slowing of
blood which flows to your extremities, such as fingers and toes. The
small arteries in these extremities become narrowed, which reduces
the blood flow, designed to preserve our core body temperature. For
sufferers of Raynaud's Syndrome (pronounced as ray-nodes), this
painful response becomes more exaggerated. As yet, the cause is
not fully understood.
These small arteries constrict dramatically, usually in the fingers and
toes, however, your nose, cheeks and ears may also be affected.
This constriction, called vasospasm, may last for as little as just a few
minutes or as long as several hours. Experiencing stressful emotional
situations can also trigger vasospasm for some sufferers.
Raynaud's Disease often first strikes sufferers between their teen
years up to about the age of 40. There is some medical evidence
which links Raynauds to other diseases that cause damage to blood
vessels and nerves, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
