Raynaud’s Syndrome Can Also Cause Pain
However, Raynaud Syndrome is not mainly about the cold. Due to the diminished blood flow, this condition can also trigger pain in the affected areas in the body. It can too make the affected skin to turn blue. Skin ulcers or sores may also develop because the prolonged episodes of low blood flow can potentially damage your tissues.
The increased symptoms, known as attacks, can be triggered by the constant exposure to cold or due to a high level of stress. An attack can last for only a few minutes but can sometimes go on for hours.
There are also people who have Raynaud’s Syndrome as their primary condition, which means that it is not accompanied by some other illnesses. In some people, Raynaud’s Syndrome is a secondary condition, which means that it will come with some other illnesses as well.
Reynaud’s Syndrome may also affect people who have rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and Sjogren’s syndrome. It is not yet clear as to what causes Raynaud’s Syndrome and there is not yet any cure for now.
