Symptoms of Raynaud’s Syndrome
1) Fingers start to go white as the circulation is restricted in the capillaries. Whiteness can be on just one or just part of one finger, or two or three fingers at a time. Often there are patches of white, showing a mottled appearance.
2) Affected areas will feel numb and have a white "waxy" look.
3) Symptoms can often include the affected areas going blue or showing a bluish tinge. This is due to a lack of oxygen in the red blood cells.
4) As the episode ends, affected areas will go bright red as the fresh oxygenated blood returns to the capillaries and cells.
4) As the circulation is restored to the attacked areas, one can experience tingling and pain and may feel like "pins and needles".
