Sometimes: Raynaud's phenomenon is a symptom caused by constriction of small blood vessels, usually in the fingers and toes, leading to a lack of nutrients and oxygen going to the fingers and toes. Raynaud's phenomenon with purple rash spots (purpura) in the legs is likely due to an autoimmune disorder such as sjogren's syndrome. A primary care doctor or rheumatologist can evaluate and treat.
