A 41-year-old member asked:
does having raynaud syndrome mean a greater chance of tearing ligaments and cartilage in my knee?

Maybe: If the raynaud's syndrome is secondary to an underlying autoimmune disease such as lupus or scleroderma your ligaments and cartilage are at some increased risk of injury. If the raynaud's is primary, there is no increased risk of joint injury.
