Is Raynaud's phenomenon serious?
Most people who have Raynaud's attacks have the less serious primary form that can be managed well by avoiding triggers. In some cases, the symptoms will improve over time, with women often finding that symptoms noticeably reduce with menopause. However, some people have lifelong symptoms. Secondary Raynaud's disease can be much more serious and may require more intensive treatment. It can lead to ulceration and require amputation in very severe cases.
