Not copd: COPD is not associated with raynauds. But scleroderma can cause lung problems like pulmonary hypertension.

Not exactly: COPD is a condition involving airway obstruction. Raynaud's is a disease that can be associated with shortness of breath, but not due to airway obstruction, but either lung scarring or pulmonary hypertension. Your physician can tell from your history, physical, and pulmonary function testing if you are having pulmonary disease related to your raynauds.
