What is Raynaud's Syndrome & How is it Triggered?
Raynaud's Syndrome or Raynaud’s Disease is a condition which affects your blood circulation. Raynaud’s Syndrome causes your hands and feet to overreact to cold temperatures. People who suffer with poor circulation often need to look for the best shoes for Raynaud’s Syndrome (as well as gloves).
This blog will provide more information on what Raynaud's Syndrome is, ways to relieve Raynaud's Syndrome pain and finding the best shoes for Raynaud's Syndrome. Sole Bliss' new collection of luxuriously warm and comfortable shoes for Raynaud's Syndrome are the best shoes for those with poor circulation.
First, we will provide a little more detail on what Raynaud's Syndrome is. Raynaud's is a condition where the small arteries which supply blood to your skin become narrow or constrict, consequently limiting the blood flow to areas such as your hands and feet. In some cases, Raynaud's Syndrome can affect extremities such as your ears and nose.
Raynaud's Syndrome can be painful but it is generally not a disabling condition. One of the most important things you can do to protect yourself (and your feet!) from suffering is to wear the best shoes for Raynaud's Syndrome.
Women are more likely to suffer with Raynaud's Disease than men are, so we will show you some of the best women's shoes for Raynaud's Syndrome. These include luxuriously warm shearling fur linings, stylish fur cuff detailing and Italian leather uppers.
Signs & Symptoms of Raynaud's Syndrome
There are several signs and symptoms of Raynaud's Syndrome. Most notably is that your hand and feet may become very cold, painful and / or numb.
Some patients with Raynaud's Syndrome will notice that their hands and feet change colour, becoming very pale and blue.
Other symptoms of Raynaud's Syndrome include acute numbness, pins and needles and some difficulty moving your hands and feet. These symptoms can last anywhere between a few minutes to a few hours. If you are suffering with Raynaud's Syndrome, we would advise addressing the condition as quickly as possible by wrapping up with warm gloves, a balaclava and shoes for Raynaud's Syndrome. You can try running your hands under warm water or taking a warm foot bath too.
Raynaud’s attacks can also leave your hands and toes painful and sensitive to touch.
Foot Pain caused by Raynaud's Disease
If you are diagnosed with Raynaud's Syndrome, it is likely that your feet are the most painful area of your body. We will show you some of the ways in which you can relieve Raynaud's Syndrome pain (including finding the best shoes for Raynaud's Syndrome). However if you are suffering with your feet, there may be other foot conditions which are causing you pain.
Plantar Fasciitis is the most common cause of painful feet. Patients with plantar fasciitis can generally experience acute pain at the bottom of the heel. The pain is also sometimes felt at the bottom of the mid-foot area. Plantar fasciitis can affect either both feet or just one foot. The pain is often at its worst when you first wake up or after lying or sitting down for a long period of time.
Sole Bliss can also help you find the best shoes for plantar fasciitis.
Other conditions which may be causing foot pain include: arthritis, diabetes, Morton's neuroma, flat feet and hammer toes.
There are also a number of conditions that may cause secondary Raynaud’s including: Scleroderma, Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren’s syndrome, arterial diseases, carpal tunnel syndrome, frostbite, traumatic injuries and certain medications.
Ways to Relieve Raynaud's Syndrome Pain
If you are looking for ways to relieve Raynaud's Syndrome pain and prevent these episodes, fear not! There are plenty of ways to do so. These are not just confined to wearing warm and comfy shoes for Raynaud's Syndrome. Here are our top tips to finding ways to relieve Raynaud's Syndrome pain:
1. Practise hand and foot care: if you have Raynaud's Syndrome, it is important that you look after your hands and feet. This includes moisturising as often as you can, ideally twice a day, and make sure you do not leave any moisturising cream between your fingers and toes. We would recommend using a moisturiser as simple as E45.
As part of your footcare routine, you should look for comfortable shoes which do not restrict your feet or blood circulation. Shop our collection of comfortable shoes for Raynaud's Syndrome and Wide Fit shoes. Where possible, you should avoid walking around barefoot too.
2. Exercise regularly: Raynaud's Syndrome is a condition which affects your blood circulation. If you are looking for ways to relieve Raynaud's Syndrome, it is important to participate in regular exercise, as this physical activity boosts your circulation.
3. Avoid smoking: Whilst exercise can improve your blood circulation, smoking can harm it. Smoking makes your blood vessels constrict and this can lower you skin temperature. If you need any help to stop smoking, speak to your doctor about medicines and programmes which can help you quit smoking.
4. Avoid caffeine: Caffeine also causes your blood vessels to constrict, which lowers your skin temperature and makes Raynaud's Syndrome worse. You should drink plenty of fluids because dehydration can lower the amount of blood moving through your blood vessels too.
