primary raynaud’s vs secondary raynaud’s

 Home » Blog

Raynaud’s phenomenon is a condition that causes the blood vessels in the fingers and toes to narrow in response to cold temperatures or stress. It can cause symptoms such as numbness, tingling, and discoloration of the affected areas.

There are two types of Raynaud’s phenomenon: primary (also known as idiopathic Raynaud’s) and secondary.

Primary Raynaud’s is the more common form and has no underlying cause. It is typically milder and affects women more frequently than men. Primary Raynaud’s is often triggered by cold temperatures or emotional stress, and it may be associated with other conditions such as migraine headaches or carpal tunnel syndrome.

Secondary Raynaud’s is less common and is caused by an underlying condition, such as a connective tissue disease (such as scleroderma or systemic lupus erythematosus), injury to the blood vessels, or the use of certain medications. Secondary Raynaud’s is typically more severe and may be associated with other symptoms such as joint pain and skin changes.
