Home Remedies For Poor Circulation In The Legs
I was diagnosed with cellulitis bad circulation in my legs is there some kind of treatment for this?
Yes for both: Cellulitis is skin infection and is treated with antibiotics-- typically you need to have an adequate blood supply in order for the antibiotics to reach the site of infection though. If your blood supply is poor, you would need further studies to identify why and where exactly the problem is, such as angiogram, ct or mri, and then there are many options to improve it with stents, bypass etcSee 3 more doctor answers

If I have poor circulation in one leg, making it colder than the other, would it affect the results of an EMG/NCS?
Probably Not, But...: Although temperature does play a role in the outcome of an EMG/NCV study, most neurophysiologists check temperature during the test to identify this as a source of error. To some extent, the answer to this question depends on the results of the test and the skill set of the person doing the test. I would discuss it with the doctor who performed the test, if possible. Stay healthy!
What are my options for poor circulation in my legs. I am at the point that I often cannot feel my legs and they are very cold. Thank you.
Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and I cannot feel my legs. Is this a sign of poor circulation? Or could it be something more serious?
Depends on the cause: Patients with venous circulation problems will get "spots", usually brownish discoloration or small veins, around the ankle. This comes from increased pressure in the veins that causes small amount s of blood to escape into the tissue. Arterial problems usually have non healing sores not spots on their foot or toes and occasionally blue or red discoloration when they hand their foot down
My mon have verico vains in legs sometime when she walks her legs feel warm is that poor circulation?
Spots from vein circ: Venous hypertension aka venous circulation problems can cause both hyperpigmentation [ brown spots ] and hypopigmentation [ atrophic or whitish spots} proper treatment of the underlying venous issue is essential however many of the skin changes can not be reversed. The reddish spot respond the best but not always. See a vein specialist or dermatologist.See 2 more doctor answers
Possibly: Probably yes but role out other causes like severe cardiac dysjuntion/shock, medication related, cold exposure.
Pain: Firstly the symptoms are described may not be the result of poor circulation. If the symptoms are affecting the arms and the legs, mostly presenting as a numbness, I would consider that she may have some underlying nerve compression of the back. If she did not have risk factors for arterial disease, hypertension, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, or smoking, atherosclerotic changes are unlikely.See 1 more doctor answer
Pain: Yes this may indicate a marked worsening of the diseaseSee 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: Cramps, tightness or "charley horses" during walking or activity might be intermittent claudication. This is a symptom common with pad. Cramps at night or during periods of inactivity that improves with walking is unlikely pad or poor circulation. Discussion with your physician may help further determine what the issue is.See 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: It depends on what type of surgeries. If the vein is harvested for bypass, for instance, the venous and lymphatics are impacted and swelling can ensue. If the arterial circulation is impacted, symptoms may be pain with walking or even difficulty healing wounds.
