Raynaud’s Syndrome Treatment Program: Diagnosis & Tests Menu

How is Raynaud’s Syndrome diagnosed?

Diagnosis is made by a physical examination, patient reported symptoms, and testing to rule out other conditions. Symptoms that patients report include:

  • Cold fingers and toes
  • Color changes in your skin from pale/white to blue and then to red when rewarmed
  • Swollen, painful areas when re-warmed
  • Ulcerations of finger or toe pads

To determine if an autoimmune or connective tissue disorder is part of the underlying problem, blood tests may be ordered such as antinuclear antibodies test or an erythrocyte sedimentation rate. There is no blood test or diagnostic test that is used to diagnose Raynaud’s.
