    Is it a common problem to have broken bones, especially in the feet/ankles with Raynaud’s?  On two occasions I have been on vacation walking for long periods of time when my feet were numb because it was cold outside: The first time, I was in high heels and ended up with a stress fracture in my ankle.  The second time I was just in disney world walking with sandals on when it got cold and my feet went numb.  It soon became uncomfortable to walk and now I am still in pain in my foot three days later.

    Hello ashpot10

    Fractures and broken bones are not connected to Raynaud’s. If you are experiencing pain or swelling that does not go away after a reasonable amount of time, your doctor should be consulted. The rheumatologist is the best type of doctor to see when Raynaud’s is present.
