I: I think it would be worth visiting your doctor to discuss this. One condition that can cause little "blood cysts" is thrombocytopenic pupura, which is caused by an abnormally low platelet count. If that's what's going on, then it would be important to know because it would put you at risk for major hemorrhages and because it could reflect other health problems. ...Read more

See your doctor.: The combination of symptoms that you are describing do not point to any one obvious problem, so you need to have a complete evaluation in an office, and perhaps blood tests or other tests. You also need to be evaluated to see why you have blood in your stool. These can be important symptoms. Do not delay. Good luck. ...Read more

Blood cloots skin injections and oral medication will I have same benefits?

Blood cloots skin injections and oral medication will I have same benefits?

For blood clots: Injections are more consistent and effective, if you can be consistent with them of course. With oral medications they can be very effective (newer prothrombin inhibitors) or ineffective/ labor intensive (warfarin). The newer oral medicaitons are reliable though, with the only caveat being they do not have an "antidote" to reverse the anticoagulation if there is bleeding issues. ...Read more

Why does it feel like the blood is rushing to my head when I laydown flat?

Why does it feel like the blood is rushing to my head when I laydown flat?

Because it is: When you lay down, 500-1000ml of blood volume which had previously been stored in the legs is released from the pull of gravity and can contribute to the perfusion pressures of the head and brain, and gravity is no longer decreasing the pressure of blood rising to the head. The brain rapidly compensates for this but the facial vessels much less rapidly so you can get a transient flushing. ...Read more

Can blood flow faster in one area and cause skin to itch?

Maybe: There are many people that take Niacin supplements. They fairly uniformly will turn red and flush because of dilated blood vessels, and may comment that they feel tingly. The argument can be made from a flow dynamics standpoint that dilated blood vessels cause faster blood flow because they are opened up more and that this tingling in some people can be felt as being itching... Perspective/opinion. ...Read more

What can cause pin point little dots of red (looks like blood not yet to the surface of my skin)?

What can cause pin point little dots of red (looks like blood not yet to the surface of my skin)?

Doctor can evaluate: Skin blood spots are called petechiae (purpura if they are big), and are due to blood cells leaking out of the tiny blood vessels in the skin. After blood cells have leaked out, the area behaves just like a bruise (the body breaks down the blood cells into different colored pigments, and carries them away). Sometimes they are nothing bad; other times they mean a serious blood or infection problem. ...Read more

Might it be possible that a a human head live without a body if we use a machine to keep the blood flowing and oxygenated?

Might it be possible that a a human head live without a body if we use a machine to keep the blood flowing and oxygenated?

In theory, yes,: But the body as a whole is an amazingly complex system of interrelated feedback mechanisms all influencing each other simultaneously to achieve relative stability. At this time and for 20+ years into the future, we don't have enough intimate knowlege to replace all of the input that an isolated head needs, which is way beyond enough blood and oxygen. ...Read more
