What causes one to get light headed and experience poor circulation in the hands and feet?

What causes one to get light headed and experience poor circulation in the hands and feet?

Could be many things: There can be many causes, such as low blood pressure or variations in the blood pressure when one changes position from sitting to standing (orthostatic hypotension), or low pulse rate (bradycardia). If symptoms are bothersome enough and don't resolve with simple maneuvers such as hydration and standing up slowly, I would recommend a physical exam ad blood pressure/ pulse check by our doctor. ...Read more

As a child I lost circulation to my right arm. I have bad circulation in both my hands, they always look red and swollen. Lately I get light headed?

Rule out vasculitis: I would recommend you get seen immediately. It sounds like you may have vascular symptoms that may or may not be Takayasu's Arteritis. I am concerned that you need to be treated immediately in person because your dizziness may reflect cerebral ischemia. Good luck. Https://www. Nlm. Nih.

Does Poor circulation cause painless red splotchy skin on the upper thigh? I had that appear suddenly, &heard poor circulation! Help? What could it be?

Unfortunately there: Are a number of diagnoses that could result in the skin signs you describe. It will be impossible to narrow it down without actually examining you. It could be as simple as exposure to cold or inactivity and as complex as neuro-vascular insufficiency. If it persists I would recommend you see a health care provider so that you can be examined and a thorough history can be obtained. ...Read more

I've got a bit of poor circulation on my top lip. A small numb white patch. I'm absolutely fine in myself. Will I get the colour and feel back?

I've got a bit of poor circulation on my top lip. A small numb white patch. I'm absolutely fine in myself. Will I get the colour and feel back?

Cause?: You are describing symptoms but without knowing the cause it's hard to say what the future holds or if there is any treatment available. Use Healthtap Prime to go over you medical, surgical, social, substance use, and family history to figure out what the cause may be. I'm not sure if testing is necessary but a picture of the white spot may be very informative to a doc. Good luck! ...Read more

I am getting numbness in face and right arm at night is this due to poor circulation I also have pain in left carotid artery and weak heart?

I am getting numbness in face and right arm at night is this due to poor circulation I also have pain in left carotid artery and weak heart?

Concerning: A blockage in the left carotid area can cause numbness, tingling and paralysis of the right side of the body. A vascular surgeon is best qualified to deal with this serious issue and I feel that this should be evaluated urgently. I assume you are already taking daily aspirin and more treatment may be needed to avoid a stroke if there is significant blockage in that artery. ...Read more

Having head pressure everyday at the back of my head which feel blood circulation shortage, had mra/mri of head/neck. Both negative. Lightheaded?

Chronicity: The prior term, chronic daily headaches, now migraines, may well be applied to your pattern. My thoughts, assuming you have no jaw, neck, dental, or sinus triggers, would be to place you on a trial of an anti migraine agent, and would opt for an OTC prep such as riboflavin, CoQ-10, butterbur, feverfew, magnesium. Hope this helps. ...Read more

How does anxiety cause a weird light headed feeling n sometimes a swaying feeling for years everyday some days better?

Out of balance: Anxiety can cause all of your systems to get out of balance. Breathing, heart function, digestion, etc are thrown off by the fight/flight chemicals and hormones flooding you. Yoga, Mindfulness meditation and other exercises can help - a lot. Talk w/ your therapist and find local classes in those activities. They can be better than drugs w/ side effects for these symptoms. Best! ...Read more
