What Does it Mean to Have Cold Hands with Raynaud's Disease

What Does it Mean to Have Cold Hands with Raynaud's Disease

For those living with Raynaud’s disease, the cold weather is anything but a winter wonderland. In fact, it’s not uncommon for those with Raynaud’s disease to experience numbing or cold hands and toes, skin changing color (typically going white, then blue), and either a prickly feeling or stinging pain and swelling when cold hands and toes are warmed up or stress is relieved.

Why Does Raynaud’s Disease Cause Cold Hands and Toes?

With Raynaud’s disease, smaller arteries supplying blood to the skin become narrow, limiting the available blood flow to the affected areas. These are also known as vasospastic attacks. Raynaud’s disease is more common in females than males and in people living in colder climates. Cold weather or exposure to cold is the easiest way to trigger an attack, along with emotional stressors. And while for most people Raynaud’s disease isn’t debilitating, the symptoms are certainly enough to make even the most avid adventurer feel tense about the cold weather months.

That’s where Gobi Heat® comes in.
