Here you go


Blood enters through the vena cavae, passes through the right atrium into the right ventricle. The blood then goes out into the lungs and returns via the pulmonary veins to the left atrium. That blood then goes out the left ventricle to the body and returns via the vena cavae. The order of blood vessels is great vessels, arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules, veins and back to the cavae.

Coronary arteries


Low O2 blood from vena cavas into right atrium to rt ventricle to pulmonary artery to lungs to be oxygenated. Then to pulmonary veins to left atrium and ventricle to be pump through aortic valve to aorta then to the body. The coronary arteries located right after the aortic valve at the ascending aorta will get O2 blood to the actual heart.

Neuropathy


Seems like you might have neuropathy. It is unlikely to have peripheral vascular disease in 22 yr old. Neuropathy secondary to vitamin deficiency could be the most plausible one in your case. Consult your physician.

Can rapid blood flow while exercising good for the heart?

Answered by:

Yes


It lowers bad cholesterol, raises good cholesterol, burns calories, promotes healthy weight, reduces the risk of diabetes, reduces the risk of abnormal blood clotting, improves aeration to otherwise underused portions of the lungs, improves muscle tone, and provocatively screens people for arteriosclerotic heart disease.

Flow


If the heart doesn't have one way flow, organ perfusion will suffer and the heart would overload

The left ventricle pumps blood into the aorta. The first branches off the aorta are the left main and right coronary arteries. These arteries have branches that distribute blood all over the heart. These smaller arteries have even smaller branches called arterioles. The arterioles branch into microscopic capillaries. This network is so thorough that every heart muscle cell is close to a capillary.

What you appear to be describing is called hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. It is not swelling, it is overgrown heart muscle causing the obstruction.
