What is Raynaud’s disease?
Do you toes sometimes feel cold and numb when it’s cold or when you’re stressed? That could signal Raynaud’s disease.
According to the Mayo Clinic, this is a condition that causes areas of the body – like the fingers, toes, nose and ears – to feel cold and numb when it’s cold or when you are under stress.
The Mayo Clinic says this is caused by the narrowing of small arteries that bring blood to these areas.
The hospital says this condition is more common in women and in people who live in cold climates.
The Mayo Clinic says treatment for Raynaud’s disease varies depending on how severe it is. If you think you might have this condition consult your doctor.
