Every 34 seconds, an individual in the United States suffers from a heart attack, and every minute someone dies from a cardiovascular-related disorder. Out of the 720,000 individuals who suffer from heart attacks annually, it is the second time for about 205,000 of them. One of the most common causes of this is poor blood circulation.
Poor Blood Circulation
Heart attacks often occur with no prior warning, unless the sufferer is aware of the signs. Plaque, scar tissue, fatty material, and calcium accumulate in the vital arteries, which are responsible for supplying the heart with blood. The inhibition of blood flow causes angina or chest pain. A complete block results in a heart attack.
Signs of Improper Blood Circulation
There are several signs and causes of poor circulation. It is extremely important to be aware of all of these. It is also essential to consult a medical professional if you experience any of them. Ignoring the signs, or simply brushing them off, could be the difference between life and death.
- Constant extreme fatigue or lethargy
- Edema or swelling of lower extremities
- Tingling or numbness in any of the extremities
- Cold extremities such as feet, toes, hands and/or fingers
- Legs that feel achy or heavy
- Sores that will not heal within the normal amount of time
- Constant dizzy spells
- Poor or declining memory
- Muscle cramps or throbbing, shooting pains
Certain disorders can result in poor circulation such as Peripheral Artery Disease, varicose veins, Diabetes and obesity. Raynaud’s Disease, which is another, causes the arteries of toes and hands to constrict. Two extremely prevalent causes of poor circulation are smoking and consistently consuming large amounts of fried, overly processed and fast foods.
