I have been dealing with severe raynauds. Thankfully I have learned how to deal with it. For years I had no clue as to what to do to help the situation and so I suffered and wanted my foot cut off at times due to the freezing cold pain. So the problem is that the nervous system is out of wack and when it senses a cold sensation *ANYWHERE* on the body it then has an over reaction response and tells all the veins to constrict. Also it takes a while for this process to recognize that the cold is no longer present and so yet the veins stay constricted. Putting gloves and thick socks on wont stop an attack. Keep your ENTIRE body completely warm. Limit your time outside in the winter - as even your skin on your face being uncovered can cause an attack. so if your raynauds affects your feet ....and you get a cold breeze on your arm while by your fridge then it will trigger a response from your nervous system and you will find yourself having an attack. the best way to get out of an attack is to get as warm as you can as fast as you can. Cover up HEAD 2 TOE! The sooner you do this the sooner the attack will end. In the winter time I work indoors only. I limit my outside time and when I come in I get warm asap. I sometimes wear a neck warmer on my head in a stylish kind of way when at work to avoid attacks as you can lose a lot of body heat from your head. This has helped me to avoid agony. There is NO cure. But I have also been taking a multi complete vitamin with minerals...I take Children's chewables cuz I'm a big suck. And I take B Complex (chewables of course). The longer you let an attack go on for the more nerve damage you will have as a result. SO always as first defense warm up ASAP!! Please understand the importance is in keeping the *body* warm...
