Healthline defines impaired blood circulation as an abnormality in the way blood is distributed throughout the body. This may cause a wide range of symptoms and health issues, such as:
Tingling or numbness in the extremities
Leg, ankle, or foot swelling
Sensitivity to cold in the extremities
Weakness Due to Exhaustion
Rapid heartbeat and/or shortness of breath
Weakness; fainting; dizziness
Varicose veins and slow wound healing
Memory loss/difficulty focusing/erectile dysfunction.
There are a number of potential causes of poor blood circulation.
Plaque buildup inside the artery walls leads to the disease atherosclerosis, which causes the arteries to harden and narrow. This can cause circulation problems by restricting blood flow.
Caused by a narrowing or blocking of arteries in the legs, peripheral arterial disease (PAD) causes blood flow to be restricted to the lower extremities.
Raynaud's illness is a condition in which the blood vessels in the fingers and toes constrict in response to cold temperatures or stress, limiting blood flow to the extremities.
Poor circulation may be a complication of diabetes because of the disease's potential to harm blood vessels and neurons.
Atherosclerosis and other disorders that reduce blood flow are both linked to obesity.
Increased risk of atherosclerosis and other disorders that reduce blood flow is associated with hypertension.
Clots in the blood can prevent blood from reaching parts of the body that need it.
Poor circulation and edoema in the legs and feet are symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), which develops when the veins in the legs stop working normally.
