February is Raynaud's Awareness Month. The campaign aims to create greater awareness and understanding of the condition and its impact. It’s a common condition that’s thought to affect up to ten million people in the UK. In people with Raynaud's, the small blood vessels in the extremities are over-sensitive to even the slightest changes in temperature, the cold and sometimes stress.

A Raynaud's attack can be painful. It can also make everyday tasks, such as buttoning a jacket, very difficult. Raynaud's symptoms generally affect the fingers and toes, but all extremities can be involved, including the hands, feet, ears and nose. Symptoms of Raynaud's are a colour change in the extremities along with numbness, tingling or pain.
