Vascular Disease: While there is an obvious genetic predisposition for everything that happens to us, raynauds disease involves spasm of the muscular lining of the arteries. In cold weather they shrink, and hot weather makes them dilate but they do so maximally. Ask your dr. About Pletal (cilostazol) which has shown excellent results in treatment.
