There are two types of Raynaud’s disease conditions. A primary condition called Raynaud’s phenomenon and a secondary condition called Raynaud’s syndrome. The difference between them is that Raynaud’s phenomenon (primary) is considered idiopathic, meaning that it occurs with no known cause from another disease. Raynaud’s syndrome (secondary) is when the cause can be traced to some instigating factor such as connective tissue disorders. There are many options that provide joint pain relief, including medicines, surgery’s, exercises and Far Infrared therapy.

Raynaud’s Phenomenon Symptoms
Raynaud’s phenomenon causes the affected areas to feel pain, visible discolouration and a sensation of cold numbness. It can be very obstructive and cause discomfort and in extreme cases become dangerous.
Primary Raynaud’s phenomenon is typically triggered by cold temperatures, emotional stress, workplace or recreational factors, and contact with certain chemicals or medicines. Cold weather triggers a spasm in these blood vessels, thus depriving these areas from oxygen. The skin changes color, fingers or toes turn blue or white and go numb. Lifestyle changes can help avoid triggers a Raynaud’s attack such as not smoking, exercise and consuming Fish oil supplements and Vitamin D.
Secondary Raynaud’s syndrome may be harder to manage due to the fact that it is cause by other conditions or diseases.
