Hi MRB98102. Raynaud’s symptoms vary by individual, so it’s hard to say what is “typical,” but here’s my take on your questions:

1. I could not be in cold water for two minutes without experiencing a Raynaud’s attack but, in general, I would say it depends on how severe one’s case is.
2. My “white” stage is definitely yellow … and my “blue” stage is more of a dusky purple.
3. For me, the pain builds as the attack goes on. As it subsides (the “red” stage), I feel a burning sensation that isn’t unpleasant at all. But, as with question 1, I suspect the pattern and level of pain will vary by individual.

I hope that helps.
