Raynaud’s phenomenon is a very common medical condition that describes an increased sensitivity of the blood vessels to cold or stress. It results in episodes of poor blood supply to the hands, feet and other extremities that can occur many times a day and cause significant pain and problems with hand function. In some cases it is very severe, especially if associated with another medical condition, such as a rheumatic disease like scleroderma. In these cases, blood supply can be so poor that skin breakdown (ulcers) or even gangrene of fingers can occur. Various medications and lifestyle changes can improve Raynaud’s.
