What Causes Poor Circulation And Light Headed
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).

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.

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.
