Filiz Erdim Raynaud made a statement about the phenomenon.
Dr. Raynaud, Ph.D. Filiz Erdim, & # 39; & # 39; In cold environments, our body tries to protect the heat. This is done by curbing the blood flow to the most distant points, that is, the hands and feet. Reduces blood flow by reducing the network of small vessels that carry blood to these points. This is not a problem for ordinary people. However, in Raynaud Fenomenon, these arteries are more normal than normal and faster than normal. This causes numbness in the hand and toes and changes from color to blue. In general, it takes about 15 minutes. If the arteries relax and the body warms up, the fingers are inflated and face before returning to normal, "he said.
