I find the various names and spellings that are used for Raynaud's quite interesting. Here is a bit of a brief rundown: Raynaud's disease is where you suffer Raynaud's phenomenon solely due to vasospasms decreasing blood supply to an area, and is usually triggered by cold. Treatment for this condition is through keeping warm, avoiding substances that are vasoconstrictive, and prescription medication for serious cases, where appropriate.
Raynaud's syndrome is where you suffer Raynaud's phenomenon due to some other factor. This may be due to another disorder, usually of connective tissue, but for breastfeeding women the other factor is commonly poor latch, or a similar factor, such as tongue tie. The treatment in this case is to ensure that the latch, or other factor, is corrected. Raynaud's phenomenon describes the fact that part of your body is displaying the classic Raynaud's symptoms of going white, blue, and red. The correct pronunciation is ray-nose (with a French accent :-)). The 'd' should definitely be silent. But, given that most people read about Raynaud's, and not talk about it, most people wouldn't know the pronunciation unless they'd read about it, and might not know what you are talking about if you pronounce it correctly The correct spelling is Raynaud's, but I commonly come across people writing it as Reynauds or similar, which must just be a common spelling mistake.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
