In brief: Spasm vs obstruction
Poor circulation is a general term but commonly refers to arterial insufficiency due to vessel obstruction which is most commonly atherosclerotic disease.
Raynaud's is a condition of sympathetic disfunction that causes excessive and prolonged small vessel contraction.
