A 38-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

I have lupus and raynaud's and livedo reticularis. Could my poor circulation be causing my dizzy spells and brain fog? My cardiac workup was normal.

Maybe : unusual for someone your age to have poor circulation. However with inflammatory conditions circulation can be limited. If you have documented blockage in the right vessels then those symptoms can develop.
