2. What Are the Symptoms?

Symptoms from Raynaud’s can range from mild to severe. The most common symptoms of Raynaud’s syndrome are fingers that become pale when exposed to the cold. The coloration will generally progress from white or yellowish to blue. Once the hands are warmed, they will turn pink or red.

Some people experience pain, tingling and numbness associated with the disorder. Symptoms may also be caused or aggravated by stress or emotional upset. Additionally, Raynaud’s disease can affect the toes and, in rare instances, other areas of the body, such as the ears, nipples and nose.
