#1057: MM- Raynaud’s Disease

Look down, are your feet purple or white?  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute.  Raynaud’s Disease is a common condition that leads to discoloration of the hands or feet.  This happens when blood vessels are constricted due to temporary spasm.  People with Raynaud’s may also experience pain, numbness, or tingling in the extremities.  These attacks are usually caused by cold weather, stress, or anxiety and are usually short lived.  Although most cases are mild, the doctor may need to prescribe medicine to help with the symptoms.  Raynaud’s Disease can also be a symptom of Lupus or Rheumatoid Arthritis.  So, it’s important to talk to your doctor if you’re experiencing symptoms of Raynaud’s.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
