If this is the case, then you could be suffering from Raynaud’s phenomenon which affects millions of people all over the world. However, most people are not even aware of the fact that they are afflicted with this phenomenon while they are suffering from it and never see a doctor.
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.

- Get plenty of exercise. This can help you to fight against stress and improve the blood circulation within your body.
