If you find that your fingers and toes have changed colour in response to a dip in the temperature, then chances are that you have Raynaud’s disease. This is basically a spasm of the blood vessels which affects the blood circulation in your fingers and toes and can occasionally also affect your ears, the tip of your nose, your lips and nipples too. Symptoms may flare as age advances or in stressful conditions.
Discolouration of fingers and toes happens because of the narrowing of blood vessels when the muscles of the vessels experience a spasm. Severity, frequency and duration of the symptoms depend upon the extent of the spasm that the blood vessels suffer.
Raynaud’s Syndrome on its own, constitutes what is called the primary syndrome. When accompanied by other diseases it becomes secondary.
Some of the diseases which are accompanied by Raynaud’s are Scleroderma, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Connective Tissue Disorders, Hormone Imbalance, Frostbite, etc.
This is what happens if you are suffering from Raynaud’s Syndrome:
Though the actual causes have not been discovered yet, it is known that exposure to severe cold can cause an abnormal spasm of the blood vessels and they will contract, obstructing the flow of blood. If this goes on for a long duration, the affected areas suffer an oxygen deficiency which in turn changes their colour to blue and purple.
The Raynaud’s Phenomenon is noticed more in people who live in cold regions, in women who perform household chores on a daily basis and in people who experience conditions of extreme stress.
Both medicine and surgery are advised to cure Raynaud’s disease depending on the severity. Some advise blood thinning medicine. For severe bouts of Raynaud’s Syndrome sympathectomy is conducted which is the process of making small incisions on the nerves of the affected hands and feet. In very rare cases amputation of fingers or toes is required to prevent gangrene.
