Does any type of vasculitis cause blood to pool in the legs and tongue and fingers to get numb when standing up from a sitting position or lying down?
Vasculitis: Vasculitis usually causes outbreaks of small red spots in the lower legs (petecchiae) but not blood pooling. Severe varicos e veins can, however, and can cause a postural drop in blood pressure producing lightheadedness on standing. Edema may occur, also. I wouldn't expect symptoms when supine. See your physician if you have further concerns and have your bp checked sitting and standing. ...Read more

The other day my right side of my body went numb in my fingers and my mouth, I think I have hurt the top of my neck also.. Do you think it's a stroke?
Probably not: It's difficult to connect mouth numbness and loss of sensation in fingers to an anatomic problem at the level of the brain--especially if these symptoms were not associated with loss of strength. Has this problem recurred? Do you have any weakness? Are there any other areas of facial numbness, difficulty with speech or swollowing? I recommend seeing your physician for detailed neurological exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could Hashimoto's Encephalopathy cause a circulation/nerve problem like mouth and fingers go numb when standing up/lying down and blood pools in legs?
Not really: "Encephalopathy" (no matter whose name precedes the word) simply refers to a state of altered thinking/understanding. Delirium could be a synonym. Therefore, encephalopathy itself tells us that the brain is MALFUNCTIONING in thought processes. Although it's certainly possible for circulation problems to COEXIST with the encephalopathy it's not necessarily its CAUSE. ...Read more

Numbess in finger: Repetitive motion would be a typical cause of this finding. You can get this just from writing with a pen or pencil a lot (especially if it does not have a soft grip). Various work tools (power tools, etc.) will do this. If the numbness is just occuring in a single finger, either chronic pressure or repetitive motion is likely the cause; if more than one finger is affected, carpal tunnel syndrome. ...Read more
