No, Raynauds is not an effect of MS. If you have Raynauds it would be a separate diagnosis.

Attacks of Raynaud's Disease causes narrowing of blood flow to the effected areas. Often the cause of Raynaud's is not known. My daughter has suspected Raynaud's, she has had symptoms since she was 13 and she is now almost 19.

Re: raynauds and ms

Although reynaulds is a separate disease, I also experience it and my Neurologist says that many MSers are susceptible to it, because of nerve damage. I get it in my feet and toes, not my hands and fingers. As soon as my feet get cold, they get painful, turn white and actually can reduce me to tears. Ive started experimenting with diffrent socks and liners- which seems to be helping.

Re: raynauds and ms

Although I haven't been dx with Renauds i have been having problems with my hands. My finger tips turn white and it can be very painful. It's been happening everytime I go outside. As soon as I come back indoors it's much better. Doesn't seem to matter if I wear gloves or not. Very strange.
