There are two types of Raynaud's; the disease which is genetic and has no medical cause, and the Phenomenon which is more serious and has medical origins. Some of those origins - scleroderma, lupus, smoking, small artery disease, repetitive motion injuries, rheumatoid arthritis, chemicals and Sjorgen's syndrome.
