In today’s program Dr. Reminga talks about Raynaud’s Disorder… what it is, who gets it, and what to do about it. Raynaud’s is considered a rare disease that affects the finger and toes. People with Raynaud’s are known to have attacks in response to cold temperatures or stressful circumstances. Many of us experience numbness in our fingers and toes after exposure to extremely cold temperatures; however, for those who live with Raynaud’s… cold conditions or emotional stress, such as anxiety or anger, can trigger an attack.

Raynaud’s is characterised by episodic attacks, called, Vasospastic Attacks, that causes the blood vessels to constrict in the fingers and toes. During a Raynaud's attack, the arteries become very narrow for a brief period. As a result, little or no blood flows to affected areas. Raynaud’s can occur on its own or… link to another condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma or lupus, multiple sclerosis, or other connective tissue diseases.

Dr. Reminga says… “Raynaud’s can be referred to as… ‘primary’ and “secondary”. There is no known cause in 9 out of 10 cases. It affects women more than men between the ages of 15 and 30… and women are affected more who live in colder climates.” Listen to Dr. Reminga explain more about Raynaud’s in today’s program. You are sure to learn something new about this condition.
