extremity disease: Raynaud's disease is due to spasm of the blood vessel muscular layer due to temperature extremes. It most commonly affects the feet and hands. I am not aware of any effect on the nose. The sensitivity of our faces (and our nose) to temperature extremes may mimic some of the symptoms however.See 1 more doctor answer
I get raynaud's in my right fingers and toes only? Does this mean it is more likely secondary? What disorders can produce this symptom?
See details: Raynauds can involve only a single finger or toe or involve several or all of them. It may not be related to any other disease or may be a component of an underlying connective tissue disorder. I would suggest evaluation by a rheumatologist for anyone with raynauds.See 2 more doctor answers
I get swollen areas on fingers and toes that are sore and hard to the touch. They last about 2 wks. Is this part of my raynaud's disease?
Possibly: It is difficult to say without being able to visualize the lesions. If it is, you need to have the raynauds treated before the skin damage becomes major. See a rheumatologist to have the problem evaluated.
Concerned about secondary Raynauds. Have mild discoloration in toes but not fingers but the nail beds of my fingers are red at times. Raynaulds?
Unlikely: Without typical color changes in the finers, Raynauds is unlikely. Normal feet often will experience color changes in response to cold.
I have raynauds and I'm outside a lot. My fingers will hurt and i'll loose filling in my toes, it's there something other then bundling more I can do?
Avoid cold: The cold weather is causing your blood vessels in the hands and feet to clamp down reducing blood flow. Keeping those parts warmer is the only thing you can do either through clothing, staying inside, or moving south.
Can the raynaud symptoms happen on patches of skin on the arms, thighs, or the trunk? Or is it only on fingers, noses, and toes?

Keep warm: Raynaud's syndrome is a spasm of the blood vessels, affecting the hands and feet, usually caused by exposure to cold. It is best to keep the hands and feet warm by wearing multiple thin layers of clothing rather than one bulky layer. Also, avoid anything tight on the feet and hands as this also prevents blood flow. Some people do well with biofeedback training to help control the vessel spasm.See 1 more doctor answer

Amputated finger: Management will depend on the site of amputation, size of amputation, how long ago did the amputation happen, what is the vascularity of the amputated finger and loss of sensation. In many cases, reattachment of the amputated finger is not possible or advisable because the patient will be more comfortable and have better function if the part is not reattached. Please go to Emergency.See 2 more doctor answers

Depends: If there is limited circulation then it may take a long time to heal. Has there been any vascular studies performed to determine where the blockage is occurring? If this blockage can be removed then it can help with the healing process.See 2 more doctor answers
Varies: If there is infection there may be a greater chance for delayed healing if there is no infection the lack of circulation is proportional to the time it takes to heel. Less circulation means more time.See 3 more doctor answers
Will I be able to walk after having 3rd and 4th toes amputated and the bones and what is the recovery time?
Yes: If the amputation is just the toes or the toes and part of the long bones behind them you can walk. You may need an insert to alleviate pressure from the other metatarsals. Recovery depends on your other health issues, if you have good bloodflow to the foot and no infection recovery is about 2-3 weeks. If you develop any complications recovery can be longer.
