I've only recently been given the diagnosis of Raynaud's Syndrome, but was given to understand that numbness can be part of it.
:Raynaud’s disease, aka syndrome or phenomenon, is a condition that causes numbness and tingling most often in your fingers and/or toes, but it can affect the tip of your nose and ears as well. This tingling and numbness sensation is in response to cold temperatures or stress.
Raynaud’s disease goes beyond just cold feet and hands, but its not frostbite. What happens with this syndrome is that your arteries constrict too much in response to cold or stress, resulting in limited blood flow to the affected vessels.
The initial symptoms of Raynauds episode include:
* white fingers/toes
As your circulation improves, your previously constricted region may:
* get red
Raynaud’s numbing “attack” symptoms may have you tingling with skin color changes. Typically from white to blue to red, although not everyone goes blue.
But if you think that this is not associated with your Raynaud's Syndrome, you should probably see your doctor right away!
I hope that you feel better soon!
