History and physical: A history and physical is the most important test. You will need an examination to clarify the diagnosis and find out why raynaud's is present. We can see it by itself, in families or associated with a variety of illnesses inclduing connective tissue diseases. These diagnoses will require a variety of tests to look at these diagnoses.

What is raynaud's phenomenon?

Vasoapastic response: Raynaud's phenomenon is an exaggerated vasoapastic response to cold weather and stress. The blood vessels of the extremity normally dilate and constrict with temperature changes. This occurs to an extreme degree in patients with raynauds. They will experience blue or white fingers or toes when exposed to cold temperature or stress. This is self-limiting and rarely causes significant problems.
