I am a 20 year old female with Raynaud's (not yet diagnosed). I am wondering, is it more likely that I have primary to secondary Raynaud's syndrome?

In brief: Primary

Many young women have Raynaud's (blanching of fingers in the cold).
The vast majority have primary Raynaud's without an underlying disease. A detailed history, physical exam, and labs help tell whether yours is primary or secondary
