Can be Treated Surgically. Once Pain Begins It Is Time For Surgical Intervention.
Waiting Could Cost You A Finger, Two Fingers, or More.
Symptoms of Raynaud’s Phenomenon
Initially the affected fingers appear white and may feel numb or cold, then turn blue. The color can have a patchy appearance. As the blood returns they turn red and may feel painful with tingling, a feeling of ‘pins and needles’ or burning.
In severe cases, tissue damage leads to gangrene and the ends of the affected digits die and become black, requiring amputation
Surgery for Raynaud’s Phenomenon
An operation known as a sympathectomy, which divides certain nerves that stimulate blood vessels to contract, helps prevent loss of digits. Also helps with the severe pain and discomfort that comes with Raynauds. Do not wait until you have finger ulcers and black finger tips. Do surgery early and help avoid finger loss.
