See below: Raynaud's phenomenon describes a set of color changes in response to cold or stress. These are usually preventable and treatable. Poor circulation does not have those changes.
Dr. Angus Worthing

Color and location: Raynauds causes fingers to turn either white, blue and/or red usually in the cold. Poor circulation is different because it can affect palms and usually the border of the color change is a smooth transition. Raynauds usually has a distinct line between normal and blue /white.
