Usually not: Trigger finger is a problem with finger tendons and how they work to move a finger. Raynaud's phenomenon is a problem with spasm of arteries in the fingers, blocking blood flow. They are not directly related, but people with raynaud's syndrome can have connective tissue disorders, so may also have trigger finger. Overuse injuries, such as in certain jobs, can cause trigger finger and/or raynaud's.
