I was just recently diagnosed with Raynauds. I went to the doctor because part of my one big toe went numb and has been that way fow a few weeks no. The doc says this can happen with a flate up and I might not get feeling back until my threahold temp is reached. It could take until the end of winter. Does amyone else suffer from this?! I have not been able to find any information that says the numbness can be prolonged.

    Hi, Both of my feet are numb and will not improve. (I was stupid) You need to realize that when the blood flow stops - your parts will not warm up on "their" own.  Never let them go without blood flow for more than 30 minutes or permanant damage will occure.

    Thanks everyone. So it is not unusual to have the numbness stay? I know it is not particulary good, and could be permanent but I was just having a hard time finding info on that anywhere. My doc says it can happen and that it could return when weather was warmer and that it may be lingering because I was was still experiencing cold temps. I just was not sure if there was something else going on as well.
