What is Raynaud's?
Definition of Raynaud's
Raynaud's is primarily a spasmodic peripheral vascular disorder (PVD) resulting in eschemia or insufficient arterial blood flow to the extremities, usually fingers and toes, as opposed to a cardiovascular disorder (CVD) which involves the main arteries and the heart. Raynaud's is most commonly associated with the microcirculation - the nerves, neurotransmitters, hormones and muscles involved in the arterioles, the tiny arterial blood vessels. The vasospasm in the muscles of the blood vessel walls is usually caused by an inappropriate response to environmental stress especially to cold temperature.
What are the symptoms of Raynaud's?
Icy cold feet, hands, toes, fingers, less commonly nose and ears, sometimes with pain and numbness. Skin color changes of white/blue/red as peripheral blood flow is reduced by the spasmodic contraction of the muscles in the blood vessel walls (the digits are usually affected), tissues become starved of oxygen (cyanosis), and blood flow returns (rubor). Not all color changes may be present or in that order nor are color changes necessary to be diagnosed with Raynaud's, but they may develop later.
There are two types of Raynaud's
1. Raynaud's disease or primary Raynaud's where there does not appear to be any underlying causative disorder (idiopathic Raynaud's).
2. Raynaud's phenomenon or Raynaud's syndrome or
secondary Raynaud's where there is an underlying causative disorder or
trauma such as scleroderma, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, vibration vascular
damage, chemical or drug side-effects, extreme cold exposure such as frostnip,
etc. causing damage to connective tissues, nerves and blood vessels.
