Common Causes of Poor Circulation
A blood clot can originate anywhere in your body and cause a block or restriction in blood flow. The most common places for a blood clot to form are the arms or the legs, resulting in symptoms of poor circulation. Blood clots have also been known to cause serious complications such as a stroke.
Most people associate diabetes with blood sugar levels, but it has also been revealed to affect circulation in our bodies. You may experience cramping in the legs that may get worse as you become more active. People with diabetic neuropathy may experience numbness or tingling, as well as nerve damage in their legs and feet,
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
PAD is more common in people over 50, although it can afflict younger people especially if they smoke. PAD causes poor circulation in the legs due to a narrowing in the arteries and blood vessels, and can eventually result in nerve or tissue damage if left untreated.
Raynaud’s disease results in chronic cold fingers and feet due to the narrowing of the arteries in the hands and toes. With arteries that narrow, it’s harder for blood to flow to these areas, leading to poor circulation. You may also experience these symptoms in other parts of the body, including your nose, ears, or lips.
