If your fingertips, toes or any other extremity become painful when exposed to cold temperatures, you might be suffering from Raynaud’s phenomenon.
If holding an iced drink – or putting your hands in the freezer – causes your fingers to turn blue (or white), you could be one of an estimated 28 million people in the U.S. who have Raynaud’s phenomenon.
If air conditioning often triggers your fingers or toes to hurt, you might be experiencing a Raynaud’s spasm.
The Raynaud’s Association is here to help. We’re a 501c3 non-profit organization providing support and education to the many sufferers of Raynaud’s Phenomenon – an exaggerated sensitivity to cold temperatures.
