In brief: Usually symmetric
Raynaud's disease is due to spasm of blood vessels supplying the fingers and toes, and sometimes other parts of the body.
Symptoms are usually symmetrical. People vary in the symptoms they get with any disorder, so it is possible that a person could have symptoms on only one side. There may be a difference in circulation to one side of the body. A primary care or rheumatology doctor can evaluate.
