  • Diagnosing and Managing Raynaud's Disease " Shelley is a 21-year-old woman "

    Shelley is a 21-year-old woman who has started noticing colour changes in her hands. She notes that her hands become white, then purple when exposed to the cold. When she warms them up, they go bright red and tingly. Her symptoms were much worse over the winter months, and were better during the summer. She is otherwise active and healthy. Unfortunately, she did start smoking recently.

    Shelley is wondering what these colour changes mean, if this condition is serious and if any other tests need to be performed. In addition, she would like to know how to better control or prevent these flares.

    Shelley would benefit from seeing her family physician who will review her symptoms and assess her for possible Raynaud's disease, and can refer her to a rheumatologist if appropriate. Shelley can also consider consulting with a Naturopathic Doctor to see if she can get some relief from her symptoms. Physiotherapy and yoga can also be beneficial to Shelley's condition.
