Hey guys. I spoke with my doctor about my symptoms where i sometimes get really cold hands and feet also one of my arms or a leg would sometimes feel like it completely loses circulation and goes numb. Also if i put my hands straight up in the air numbing sensations would slowly start. I also get edema in my body around the waist particularly and my weight could fluctuate by 4lbs from one day to the next (this could be from mercury also) - this really pisses me off. I also notice some days my arms look bigger/fuller other days they look like flat limbs its really weird. Also i got a massage the other day a fullbody one and when i was being massage on my arms and legs it was really really ****ing painful!!! especially my calves when being massages. Like knives... this furhter tells me circulation is definitly 100% a problem for me.
My doctor thinks this is PVD. But he is doing a arm/brachial index test to make sure. He said it would be from smoking. I smoked last year for about 6-8 months although i was probably something like 5 to a maximum of 10 per day and i wouldnt even smoke everyday. I also smoked before this on and off and only one or two when i felt i needed it.
He also said my immune function T-cells didn't look right and im seeing an immunologist, i duno if this would have any effects on circulation who knows.
I don't smoke anymore. I don't drink either (never have).
What nutrients or supplements could i use to help improve circulation?
Im using Ginko Biloba only right now.
