In brief: Raynaud's

Raynauds syndrome can be isolated or part of an underlying autoimmune disease.
Raynauds syndrome is when the blood vessels in your hands and feet go into spasm.(vasospasm). This causes a decrease in blood flow and reduced oxygen in the area. The reduction in oxygen causes the color in your feet and hands to turn white, then blue and finally red once the blow flow has returned to the area.
