In brief: 3%-5% have symptoms

Raynaud's disease (no cause found) and raynaud's syndrome (caused by another medical condition) are not that rare.
An estimated 3% to 5% of the population have raynaud's phenomenon, although symptoms can range from quite mild all the way to severe.

In brief: Hard to say

Raynaud's is coldness, color changes, and sometimes pain in the hands and feet.
Mild forms of raynaud's are pretty common if you call cold hand , cold feet, and a little pain raynaud's. However, most people with these symptoms don't seek medical help so the incidence is hard to know. Severe symptoms are not common, perhaps less than 1% of the population and occurring mostly in young women.
