I haven’t been diagnosed yet but it seems quite evident that I have Raynaud’s in my fingers and I am definitely questioning whether I have it in my nipples as well. I don’t have any children so it’s obvious that it is unrelated to breastfeeding which is the only information that I tend to find regarding Raynaud’s in the the nipples. Does anyone else experience this that does not have children and/or has not breastfed? Curious what your experience is.
You ask a good question, since Raynaud’s attacks can occur in the area of any of the bodies extremities. We’ve only heard of nipple issues from women either breastfeeding or pregnant, but it’s certainly possible to for any sufferer to have issues with their nipples. I’ll ask this question on our social media pages and see if we get more answers an will share what we learn.
Yes, I have! A few years ago I was running on a regular basis, and had very painful issues with my nipples. I know it was from my Raynaud’s as they would turn white, then red/blue just like my hands and feet do. Due to an injury, I no longer run and I no longer have those issues.
Far from ever being a runner! LOL! I wonder if there was any friction between the nipples and the fabric that may have caused the vasospasms? But I would think that you would still need to have underlying issues with Raynaud’s or something else for friction to trigger a Raynaud’s reaction. Well, I am glad that you no longer have that issue!!
