Muzz, Reynaud's can retrict the blood flow into your legs and cause the symptoms that you're describing. Many have found great relief from a procedre called a Lumbar Sympathectomy. This is done by injecting and essentially "numbing" the sympathetic nerves that run along the arteries into the legs to release the spams which are restricting the arteries. Many have been frightened off by the name and assume that it's done like an epidural. It is not and in fact does not involve the actual spinal column. The injection is done through the lower back, near the spine, but goes deep into the pelvis. My Mom has this done every fall to compensate for the lower blood flow through the winter.
Another issue to consider is whether some of your problems are related to peripheral neuropathy. Both Mom and I suffer from that and we've both had great success using Cymbalta for it. In addition, I take Neurontin and Mom takes Lyrica. Another great med for neuropathy pain is Tramadol (Ultram or Ultram ER).
Neither Mom or I had much luck relieving the nerve pain with opiates alone. I hope that your Doc will be able to help you find the relief you seek.
