Importance of identification and treatment of Raynaud’s phenomenon.

Identification of the form secondary to autoimmune phenomenon is essential, because of the potential for complicated outcomes, internal organ involvement and more frequent need for pharmacological treatment. Future Rheumatology. October 2007, Vol. 2, No. 5, Pages 521-525. (Also see: Raynaud's)

Janey, this was such a great link to post, especially with colder weather upon so many of us.

It's so important for those of us with raynauds to take care.
I've always worked to keep myself warm, but wasn't aware (until this link) how Raynauds can affect us, if it isn't properly treaated :o
I'm so grateful to my rheumatologist for treating me immediately... for my raynauds phenomenon.

Thank you, Janey!

Hugs, Susie
