In brief: Are you sure
Raynaud's is related to the contraction of the vessels in the fingers, toes in response to cold or stress or both.
In can also occur in internal vessels like those to the heart or the kidney. All of these can be a big deal and can lead to blocked vessels in the fingers = gangrene; heart or kidney = damage. Why you have raynaud's is important to these outcomes. You need this diagnosed.
