Start planning for February 2019. Scleroderma & Raynaud's UK (SRUK) need you to continue to help increase awareness and understanding of Raynaud's and why it is important that everyone knows the signs and symptoms.

1 in 6 people in the UK live with Raynaud's. In people who have Raynaud's, the small blood vessels in the extremities such as hands and feet, fingers or toes are over-sensitive to even the slightest changes in temperature, the cold and sometimes stress. This causes a Raynaud's attack where the fingers sometimes change colour, but not always, from white, to blue, to red. A Raynaud's attack can be a very uncomfortable, possibly painful, process. It can also make everyday tasks, like buttoning a jacket or unzipping a purse, very difficult. Raynaud's symptoms generally affect the fingers and toes, but all extremities can be involved, including the hands, feet, ears, nose, ears, tongue and nipples.

Symptoms of Raynaud's are:

A colour change in the extremities such as hands or feet Cold extremitiesand numbness tingling or pain.
