Can I feel sleepy after eating if I have thick blood? Also my arms and feet are always cold.

Can I feel sleepy after eating if I have thick blood? Also my arms and feet are always cold.

Not typically: Thick blood, otherwise known as polycythemia, usually does not cause sleepiness itself. The most common cause of sleepiness after eating is related to sugar metabolism. After you eat, your sugar level goes up and insulin is secreted by your body in a greater amount to reduce the level in your bloodstream. One of the effects of insulin secretion and potentially hypoglycemia is sleepiness. ...Read more

I am having acne like rash on my front side of arms for about 5months now after eating different medicines for about 2months. It iches and leaves scar.

This applies even if the medicines you are taking are "natural holistic herbal pure Mother nature" medicines -- they're often not what they claim to be. I suggest you call your physician and stop taking any pills that you don't truly need to survive. A stop at a competent dermatologist may be wise. ...Read more
