Raynaud’s Syndrome in Fibromyalgia

Cold hands and feet are also common symptoms found in people with fibromyalgia (FMS) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). In most cases, this condition is only a symptom. However, in some instances, this condition is because of an overlapping condition known as the “Raynaud’s Syndrome” or the Raynaud phenomenon.

What Is Raynaud’s Syndrome?

Raynaud Syndrome is a condition where the blood vessels would end up constricting more than they are supposed to. As a result, less blood will be able to pass through. This is why you will feel cold in your extremities and you will have a hard time warming up. The most common areas in the body that is affected by the Raynaud Syndrome are the toes and fingers. However, it can also affect your lips, ear lobes, nose, nipples, and knees.
