We know that Raynaud's phenomenon affects the blood flow to your
extremities, generally your fingers and toes are most affected. Raynauds
is caused by a sudden constriction of the blood vessel causing your skin
to change in colour from white to blue, then red. These changes are often
accompanied by discomfort and sensations of pain, tingling and
numbness. Statistics show us that women under the age of 25 are most
often affected by Raynaud's phenomenon.
Raynauds episodes may last from several minutes to hours and may even
be caused by an underlying autoimmune disorder. Usually raynauds
phenomenon doesn't cause permanent damage to the affected areas.

Why Does Raynauds Disease Cause Reduced Blood Flow
and Colour Changes?
For most of us, our body prevents heat loss in cold weather by redirecting
blood away from our fingers and toes. However, if you suffer with
Raynauds phenomenon, this function is much more exaggerated. Instead,
your blood vessels constrict, reducing the amount of blood reaching the
tissues which in turn, causes your skin to look blue or white in colour.
Usually, circulation in the rest of your body is normal.
Eventually, when blood flow returns, your skin turns from blue to red and
finally back to your own normal skin colour.
