For many years controversy has existed over the pathophysiology of Raynauds phenomenon RP. When Maurice Raynaud initially described the phenomenon which now bears his name, he postulated that the peripheral vasospasms were the result of sympathetic overreactivity. However, Lewis theorized that the problem was attributable to local fault of the arteries, whereas other have attributed it to increased blood viscosity. It in not unlikely that RP is the result of multiple factors, Because the sympathetic nervous system alterable by behavioral techniques, many researchers have attempted to treat RP using conditions techniques. This approach is all the more prevalent due to the adverse side effects and the equivocal results associated with pharmacological and surgical intervention in RP treatment.
