Raynaud's disease; what is it ? 

Raynaud's disease is a cardiovascular disorder affecting the hands, feet, nose and ears of certain persons. 
It is a blood circulation disorder mainly caused by cold or more rarely by intense stress. In some cases, this syndrome also occurs when your fingers are exposed to vibrations.

Usually, when your body is exposed to cold, it tries to conserve as much heat as possible by constricting the arterioles located just under your skin. This allows blood and therefore heat to flow into your deepest veins. This way your organs are kept warm. In Raynaud's syndrome, the nerves overreact to cold and restrict the blood supply to the affected areas. This causes pain, numbness and in some cases damage to the blood vessels. 

There are two forms of Raynaud's disease: 

The primary form is also the most common, about 90% of cases are affected.
It appears mostly in people between 15 and 25 years of age and resolves itself after a few years. Here the attacks are relatively mild and often symmetrical. 
This form is much less aggressive, it does not cause necrosis or tissue gangrene. 

The secondary form is much more rare. 
This one is often more serious and causes extreme pain to the person. This syndrome causes severe attacks that can be asymmetric and unilateral. 
The creation of ulcers, ischemic lesions and cyanosis, usually infected appear on the fingers.  It is often related to a history or associated conditions.   
Other factors can promote this syndrome, including smoking and caffeinated beverages because they cause the reduction of the caliber of blood vessels.

What are the symptoms ?

Do your fingers and toes become white and frozen when you are cold? Do you feel numbness or insensitivity? This is caused by blood that no longer circulates or circulates very poorly in your extremities.  Generally, your three central fingers are affected, while the thumb is rarely affected. 

This phenomenon is divided into three phases:

The ischemic or "white" phase: your fingers turn white, are cold and insensitive. The time of this phase varies a lot depending on the person but lasts on average a few minutes. For some people, their attack is limited to this phase.

The asphyxiation or "blue" phase: this phase also lasts a few minutes. Your fingers become blue and an unpleasant and painful tingling sensation is felt. 

The recovery or "red" phase: this is the phase where your fingers regain their original color and become warm. In most cases, they become red, very sensitive and swollen.
