Yes, we treat people with Raynaud’s Phenomenon. Raynaud’s is a condition that results in poor blood flow, typically to the hands and feet. The decreased blood flow is exacerbated by cold temperatures and can cause color changes and pain in the digits. As Raynauds progresses, it can cause gangrene to the affected digits. When evaluating someone for Raynauds, it’s important to determine if they have primary Raynauds or Raynauds secondary to a connective tissue disease such as lupus or scleroderma. The treatment for Raynauds is to improve blood flow to the affected extremity by keeping the hands and feet warm and we typically use oral or topical medications as well. The medications work by dilating the blood vessels so your blood pressure needs to be monitored because a common side effect of medications used to treat Raynauds is low blood pressure.
