This condition occurs when the core temperature of the body decreases. One or more fingers or toes suddenly feel numb and turn white and painful. Warming the hands or feet reverses the problem but repeated episodes can lead to atrophy of the tissues or even ulceration of the fingers or toes. An evaluation by a rheumatologist should be undertaken to ensure no underlying autoimmune disease is causing this problem.
Homeopathy is very effective for symptomatic relief of Raynaud’s Syndrome.
