How do you cure poor leg circulation?

Good question!: If you smoke, don't! take Aspirin 75 mg - 325 mg daily. Keep BP and blood sugar under control. Exercise daily. Even if it's just for 15 min. Eat a mediterranean or low fat diet and take a statin. Finally, if you have rest pain, non-healing ulcers or very limiting pain with walking, consider revascularization by balloon/stent or surgery. ...Read more

Circulation: If you feel your circulation is poor see your doctor. As far as tests are concerned that would depend on what your exam shows. It would be unusual to have a vascular problem at 29 ,but if your lab test are normal for sugar, renal function and thyroid, it may help to get C-reactive protein, cholesterol, homocyseine. Your doctor may consider an ankle brachial index ...Read more

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.
