My mom had Reynauds for the last 34 years of her life. Ten years of this period she lived on boats. While she was careful to avoid cold, she lived a pretty normal life otherwise. On the other hand she had friends with Reynauds who were going downhill much more rapidly than she. I don't know whether you are a smoker but smoking can greatly accelerate the decline. Staying out of the cold obviously makes a big difference as well.
