My hands get very cold when the temperature lowers. Do you know why this might be? Overall I believe I have good blood circulation and stay active.

The phenomenon is believed to be the result of vasospasms that decrease blood supply to the respective regions. Usually benign. If severe, you can simply wear gloves in cold weather.

Are phlebotonics any good for blood or venous circulation? Can elderly suffer from vertigo due 2 poor blood circulation? What medicines can be taken?

Backwards thinking: You're starting at the end: what treatments? Instead of at the beginning: what is it & what is the cause? Vertigo is like pain: it's not a disease, it's a symptom. Like pain it can have many causes, from trivial to serious. Often no specific cause can be found. THEN you go to (symptomatic) treatment. See your doctor & find out what it is; THEN what you can do about it. ...Read more

How to increase blood circulation in heart any good foods are any particular exercise? My relative had ECG and they told its like ischemia

At this point no: If your relative is having chest pains and an abnormal ekg suggestive of a blocked artery, the only way to improve blood flow is to open up the blocked artery either with a stent or surgery. Doing strenuous exercise if he has a blocked artery can be dangerous and can lead to a heart attack.

Hi, after a days work were I'm always on my feet, when I get home I see that only my right foot is blue in colour? I have very good shoes (Bronx shoes) very comfortable, I'm a smoker, can this be bad blood circulation?

Slower return.: It sounds as though the venous blood, (returning to the heart from the leg), may be a bit sluggish. This slowing can cause a blueness to the leg in question. When the foot is elevated, the color should return quickly. Before trying any over the counter treatment, have your foot evaluated for venous return issues. ...Read more

If my right arm and hand from the elbow down are tingling, is this probably a sign of poor blood circulation?

If my right arm and hand from the elbow down are tingling, is this probably a sign of poor blood circulation?

Cubital tunnel: A more common cause of the described symptoms is compression of the ulnar nerve behind the elbow. Tingling from ulnar nerve goes into the small and ring finger. Try wearing an elbow pad with the pad rotated around to the front of the elbow at night. This keeps the elbow from bending, thereby keeping pressure off the nerve. If symptoms persist, consult with an upper extremity surgeon. Emg helpful. ...Read more

Doctor, I'm a DVT patient still taking warfarin, can I take cayenne pepper spice? Am told it is good for blood circulation.

Doctor, I'm a DVT patient still taking warfarin, can I take cayenne pepper spice? Am told it is good for blood circulation.

Caution: This herb capsicum (cayenne) may have the potential to prolong clotting time, so people taking warfarin should exercise caution before eating quantities of chili peppers.

Cayenne also inhibits liver enzymes (cyp1a2) and thus slows the metabolism of warfarin.

The combined effect could lead to an increased risk of bleeding. ...Read more
