Hi and thanks for the query,
Its shall be interesting to know if the eye ache is usually accompanied by headache or not. There could be an association between the tender temple and the eye ache. This is a syndrome found in temporal arteritis. A fundoscopy (examination of the back part of the eye by an apthalmologist), a physical examination and an erythrocyte sedimentation rate are sufficient o make a clear cut diagnosis.
For umps of indigestion, most of the time its temporal. Your diet usually counts. Exercise, vegetable XXXXXXX diet, more fluid intake, avoiding late meals on its own could help solve the problem. On rare occasions with persistence, your family physicians might prescribe your other drugs or do some tests if necessary. As of now, I suggest you apply the above cited life style changes for some weeks.
Abnormal blood circulation needs actually to be diagnosed by a physician, with particular tests. Blood flow is usually measured using a specific test called a doppler ultrasound.
What you might be describing could be changes in the sensation on the limbs which is a peripheral neuropathy. Low Calcium and Magnesium level on their own could explain such symptoms. I suggest you take and appointment with an internist for a proper evaluation.
Hope this helps but do not hesitate asking further questions if need be.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
