Raynaud’s Phenomenon

Raynaudโ€™s occurs when fingers (and sometimes toes) mysteriously turn red, white, and/or blue, due to spasm of arteries.ย  Episodes usually last 15-30 minutes.ย  They can be triggered by the cold or stress, but can happen for seemingly no reason.ย  Itโ€™s not really a disease, although it may sometimes be associated with many rheumatologic diseases.ย  These include Lupus, scleroderma, Sjรถgrenโ€™s Syndrome, and more.

For most people, the symptom is simply curious.  But if itโ€™s overly bothersome or painful, there are treatments which may control it.
