Secondary Raynaud’s is less common but more severe. This form of the disease occurs along with other medical conditions. The onset for secondary Raynaud’s is typically after the age of 40. It is associated most often with autoimmune and connective tissue disorders.

Some of the common conditions that are linked to the secondary form of the disease include lupus, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disorders and blood disorders. A person who has had frostbite may also develop secondary Raynaud’s in the damaged tissue.
