Open all pages about Raynaud's

The main symptom of Raynaud's is your fingers and toes changing colour when you're cold or stressed. You may also have pain, numbness and tingling.

To help with symptoms of Raynaud's, keep warm, avoid sudden changes in temperature, eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and do not smoke.

If you have severe Raynaud's a GP may prescribe medicine to improve your circulation. You may have tests to check if it's a sign of another condition.

Raynaud's is where your blood stops flowing properly to your fingers and toes, usually when you get cold, or sometimes if you're anxious or stressed.
