Raynaud’s Awareness month

February 12, 2018

 

 

Raynaud's disease (Ray-nose) is where the small blood vessels in the extremities such as hands and feet, fingers or toes are over-sensitive to even the slightest changes in temperature, the cold and sometimes stress. This causes a Raynaud's attack where the fingers sometimes change colour, but not always, from white, to blue, to red. Raynaud's phenomenon is a common condition thought to affect up to ten million people in the UK and can impact your life.

 

A Raynaud's attack can be a very uncomfortable, possibly painful, process. It can also make everyday tasks, like buttoning a jacket or unzipping a purse, very difficult. Raynaud's symptoms generally affect the fingers and toes, but all extremities can be involved, including the hands, feet, ears, nose, lips, tongue and nipples.

 

Raynaud's symptoms are:

  • a colour change in the extremities such as hands or feet

  • cold extremities and numbness

  • tingling or pain

Raynaud’s is a common condition affecting up to 10 million people in the UK. If you often have cold hands or feet could you be living with this condition?
