Raynaud's Syndrome and Raynaud's Phenomenon.

The primary form (Syndrome) occurs by itself, is not related to other diseases or conditions, and has no known cause. In contrast, the secondary form (Phenomenon) has the potential for serious complications and may be caused by another disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis and scleroderma. Dr. Rob Danoff. MSN Health and Fitness. (Also see: Raynaud's)

Did you see where to get further information in the above article?

The cold snap left my feet dead.

Raynaud's should be taken seriously because although in some people the condition may be mild, once it starts to interfere with one's daily life and activities it is important to check with a general practitioner that there is no underlying condition". Jane Elliott. BBC News. 02/07/09. (Also see: Raynaud's Patient Stories)

Yes, I did notice that, guys (after I got over the misspelled Raynaud's in one of the headings). I guess it is true what they say:

The most important thing in the world to know about scleroderma is www.sclero.org!
