When I am standing I can feel blood pumping through my legs especially in the thighs? Is it Ok? Please advise

When I am standing I can feel blood pumping through my legs especially in the thighs? Is it Ok?

Please advise

Pumping blood: This is not a sign of any disease. I would advise you to try to look for pulses on your feet if you know how to do so. If you have pulses in your feet, that means you have good circulation. Same if you feet feel warm, look pink and grow hair. Otherwise, the symptom you describe is not anything that would make me concerned. ...Read more

Ankle pain, can feel blood pumping through ankle. pain radiating from below the knee to ankle. hurt during football kicking the ball?

Rice it.: There is a whole lot going on between the knee and the ankle. Ice the leg, at the ankle and the knee, and keep it elevated. Avoid ambulation. If not drastically improved within 24 hours, you will need to have it examined by an orthopedic surgeon. Rest,Ice, Compression and Elevation = RICE. ...Read more

I feel blood pumping in my legs and I can see it pumping when I look at my legs. They feel like spasms of some kind. Should I be concerned?

I feel blood pumping in my legs and I can see it pumping when I look at my legs. They feel like spasms of some kind. Should I be concerned?

Probably not: You feel blood pumping in your legs because blood IS pumping in your legs. In fact, if you pay attention, you'll feel blood pumping everywhere. Just like someone else can feel your pulse from the outside, you can feel your pulse from the inside. In places where the arteries are close to skin and/or cross a bony surface, you may also see the pulsations. I hope this helps. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: A primary care doctor and a neurologist can evaluate to see what might be going on. From this question, it's hard to tell exactly what sensations one is feeling. Some patients with a condition called arachnoiditis have sensations that may feel like insects crawling on the skin or water trickling down the leg. Arachnoiditis is an inflammation of one of the linings of the spinal cord. ...Read more

Exercise: It is improbable that you can feel the blood moving. It is not feasible to know what the feeling is without examining you.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I have extremely wobbly, weak legs when walking and can feel blood rush back to/through my left arm. What could be wrong?

I have extremely wobbly, weak legs when walking and can feel blood rush back to/through my left arm. What could be wrong?

Dreamer712 disease!: Just kidding.
Weakness in legs suggests musculoskeletal system and shouldnt have any direct connection with blood rushing thru arms, i.e circulatory system. If you havent had a physical recently, this would be a good reason to request one, to get an exam and labs as needed and to get treated as indicated. Iron, other mineral like calcium deficiencies can present w different symptoms. Feel better: ...Read more

Heavy bleeding down my legs in the morning  , big clot came out in shower. Now no blood through out the day. Not due for period for a week.?

Vag Bleeding: Check a home pregnancy test.

Abnormal vaginal bleeding has many possible causes. By itself, it does not necessarily indicate a serious condition. But if it has been happening for a month you should see your GYN doctor.

I've had pain radiating my lower buttocks down through my lower leg as well as veinsin the back of my knee. Family is conccerned its a blood clot?

Sciatica or Clot: Blood clots cause pain and swelling in the foot, lower leg, and seldom move up the leg to the buttocks. Irritation of the sciatic nerves usually started in the lower back to buttocks area with pain going down the back of the leg. Pressure in the back of the knee on the nerve could cause pain up to the buttocks and down to the foot. Check with your physician immediately for testing and treatment. ...Read more

My husband spent 8 days in the hospital for blood clot in his leg. While there he went through severe dts from alcohol. He was told his liver is enlar?

Question?: Unclear about your question. Dependence on alcohol -- addiction, alcohollsm -- can mean DT's when it is stopped. Treatment in a hospital is often required. Enlarged liver is a common problem with alcoholism. I hope you are encouraging him to get treatment for his drinking, to maintain his sobriety. Consider AA, and for yourself, consider Al-Anon. ...Read more

Anxiety/Panic attack: This sounds like you may be suffering from anxiety and/or a panic attack. However, your symptoms might also be caused by low blood sugar, a food allergy reaction or dehydration. Have some juice (in case you have low blood sugar), drink water if you may be dehydrated, lie down and take slow deep breaths. This feeling should pass soon. Discuss with your regular doctor to help prevent recurrences. ...Read more

I woke up with a strange blood stain on my sheets. Just took a shower and had blood on my thigh. It just seems to have seeped through the pores.

Not the pores!: Assuming no scratches or other skin source, the two most likely places blood could seep out are rectal and penile. First thing to do is to have your doc check for hemorrhoids. Was (or is) your urine brownish? Also, vigorous sex may occasionally cause a bit of superficial trauma. ...Read more
