Raynaud’s phenomenon affects up to five percent of the general population, but for 37 percent of people with the disorder, it leads to connective tissue disease. In this slideshow, we sum up identifying factors for primary Raynaud’s and secondary Raynaud’s as described by Fredrick M. Wigley, M.D., and Nicholas A. Flavahan, Ph.D., two Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine physicians who, on August 11, published a related review article in the New England Journal of Medicine.

How often is vasovagal syncope a co existing problem with Raynauds Syndrome? I see it in my family. Very strong association and occurrence.
