What exactly is the Raynaud’s Phenomenon? Let’s take a deeper look.
Raynaud’s phenomenon is when you get afflicted with unpleasantly numb fingers and toes and in some cases even the ears and the nose gets affected with this feeling of numbness. This happens due to the closing down of the blood supply to the arteries, which cause them to spasm due to the coldness.
