Raynaud's Disease and Its Effect on the Feet

Raynaud’s disease is the tightening of the blood vessels caused by cold temperatures or high stress levels and is typically temporary. While it’s not a severe health issue for many, for some individuals with autoimmune diseases, this condition can appear as a secondary disease and cause health problems and discomfort. Because October is Raynaud’s Awareness Month, in today’s post, Dr. Hubert Lee at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA, shares what you need to know, including symptoms and treatment options.

Symptoms of Raynaud’s disease include:

Treatment of Raynaud’s Disease

Raynaud’s can be managed by following these at-home treatments.

While Raynaud’s disease is not typically dangerous, in rare cases, it can become serious, restrict the blood supply to the feet and hands, and cause skin sores or tissue damage.

Patients with a medical history of autoimmune diseases and diabetes are prone to Raynaud’s, so visit your podiatrist as early as possible to save your limbs from damage.
