In today’s program Dr. Reminga, from Northern Foot Care Center, talks about Raynaud’s disorder which cause some areas of the body, such as fingers and toes, to feel numb and cold in response to cold temperatures or stress. With Raynaud’s, smaller arteries that supply blood to your skin can narrow which then limits blood circulation to affected areas such as the hands and feet. Dr. Reminga talks about primary and secondary Raynaud’s as well as who gets Raynaud’s and what to do about it if you have this condition. It’s considered a rare disease. Many people experience numbness in their fingers and toes after exposure to extremely cold temperatures, however, for those who live with Raynaud’s, cold conditions or extreme stress, such as anxiety, can trigger an attack.

Raynaud’s is triggered by episodic attacks, or Vasospastic Attacks, that cause blood vessels to constrict in the fingers and toes. During these attacks, the arteries become very narrow or a brief period causing little or no blood to reach the affected areas. Raynaud’s can be linked to other conditions, such as… rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma or lupus, multiple sclerosis, or other connective tissue diseases. It can also occur on its own without a link to another condition.
