There are 3 main problems that are caused by poor leg circulation.
- Swollen legs and ankles
- Pain in the legs and calves
- Cold and numb feet
Which one do you suffer from? Swollen legs and ankles? Or do you suffer from all three or more?
Your doctor may have briefly told you why you are experiencing these problems but maybe not enough for you to understand fully in order to make alternative choices.
Doctors rarely have much time these days to spend with their clients. No fault of their own! Health problems created through modern lifestyles, and failing health systems present overcrowding of surgeries with fewer doctors to meet the challenge, so time is scarce and prescriptions are abundant. But drugs are probably the last measure you want to take and especially when they often present their own set of problems.
Because high blood pressure and circulation of the blood are connected, many of you visiting this site, will be experiencing these symptoms. So let`s look at the three main poor leg circulation problems separately to learn what is happening inside our legs and feet, and what are the effective solutions.Before we proceed, however, if you have not been diagnosed by your doctor and are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is wise to make an appointment to determine what are the causes as there are many.
Swollen Legs and Ankles – Poor Leg Circulation Symptom No.1
This is caused by a build up of fluid (peripheral edema) and can cause pain and difficulty of movement or walking. In time you may even notice the color of the skin is turning purple reddish, or bluish. Then it`s time to do something about it.
What is it that causes peripheral edema? When the blood isn`t circulating properly, it can`t help to drain fluids and so they build up in the surrounding tissue causing the legs and ankles to swell.
The skin can become dry and ulcerated with time if the condition is not treated, and continue to deteriorate leading to serious problems such as gangrene and amputation.
There is no need for the condition to go as far as this if you recognize the symptoms and take action to help yourself. The question is, what action can you take? Now keep this question on hold for a while.
Pain in Legs and Calves – Poor Leg Circulation Symptom No.2
This can be quite a scary experience. After just a hundred yards or so of walking, some may feel a gnawing pain in the calve muscles, and the only way to ease it is to sit down. But shortly after beginning to walk again, the pain returns. Why???
If you have been told by your doc that a little walking will do the trick, are you likely to view it as an easy solution under these conditions? Hardly! It`s like a vicious circle.
But why would the doc recommend walking in the first place to ease the pain? The reason is this! Your body is fighting against gravity to get blood and fluids back to the heart and other organs. Your muscles in the soles of your feet and the calves of your legs act as pumps to pump the blood and fluids back to the heart and organs. But if you have poor leg circulation the muscles don`t get enough oxygen to burn “biochemical fuel”, they can`t work, they also need sufficient blood, and when this is restricted, you experience pain. Adding to that, if you don`t get those leg and foot muscles working, and your veins are weak, have poor elasticity, and the valves don`t function properly (venous insufficiency), the blood pools causing a series of problems like the swollen ankles and legs that I mention above.
Now many of you reading this article must be cringing at the thought of walking, because walking to you means pain and how else are you going to get the muscles to work. Is there another way to do it? That question will be answered shortly too. But first let`s talk about the 3rd symptom.
Cold Feet and Numbness – Poor Leg Circulation Symptom No.3
Most people who suffer from poor leg circulation experience numbness in the feet and legs. If blood circulation is poor or blood vessels are restricted, enough nutrients and oxygen and warmth can`t get to the legs and feet causing coldness, numbness and tingling.
You probably notice that when the weather turns cold, the symptoms get worse, and it can feel like a horrible freezing numbness. That happens because on a cold day the body naturally reduces blood flow to the extremities to preserve your body temperature. This is a normal mechanism. So if you suffer with circulation problems, that coldness becomes almost unbearable.If you can boost your blood circulation, warmth blood will return quickly to the extremities, and feet and toes will warm up. But if you add a warming treatment also, then you have an excellent combination to help restore your cold and numb feet. Is there such a combination? Read on!
