Not necessarily: The raynaud's and scleroderma association in the U.K. States that raynaud's disease is more common in teens and young adults, especially teen girls and young women. The majority of patients resolve their symptoms in their twenties. (probably the approximately 10% of cases who have secondary conditions causing raynaud's will continue to have symptoms unless their secondary disorders are resolved.).
Dr. Kevin Nolan

Raynaud's : It is not usually progressive itself though associated conditions like connective tissue disorders and other can be which may make the symptoms worse.
