Can high blood pressure and low iron cause swelling on the hands and feet with a rash on the hands?

Can high blood pressure and low iron cause swelling on the hands and feet with a rash on the hands?

I don't think so. ..: Usually, swelling of the hands & feet is caused by benign fluid retention: idiopathic edema. If it were accompanied by breathlessness one would have to suspect your heart, but high blood pressure by itself shouldn't cause this. Fatigue, pale skin & weakness are the most common symptoms of iron deficiency. I think you have issues that are unrelated. But a good review of all by your doc is needed:) ...Read more

Sounds like: Some of your symptoms may be related to your fibromyalgia. It does not look like you are taking any medication for this. If you are having swelling/edema in your extremities that can also be a cause for the "burst veins". Varicose veins can also become inflamed, causing your symptoms. I would recommend you see your doctor to have these addressed. There ARE treatments for fibromyalgia! ...Read more

Cannot say in your p: Particular case without an exam, but it's a stretch. The whole arm gets a lot of blood from big arteries. Blockage of all/most of those is not commonly seen and would have a lot of effects. Pinched nerves such as in the neck or elbow are far more common. ...Read more
