Feeling circulation on arms and legs, please help

ok, my husband says that he can feel his circulation on his arms and legs going bad... so i told him to start taking asprin cause i have been told that it is good for the heart and it also helps to thin your blood incase of blood clots. so i bought him some asprin and he has been taking one a day,he says he feels alot better. but then when i told his mother what he was doing , she said that asprin was bad for the heart and kidneys.so know i dont know what to believe..... any oppinions?

Aspirin is contraindicated for some conditions and shouldn't be taken along with certain drugs, so you should not start taking it without consulting your doctor first. When daily aspirin is recommended, it is only a low-dose (basically baby aspirin, although they now sell low-dose aspirin just for this purpose), NOT a regular tablet.

This morning when I woke up, I was lying flat on my back with both legs extended in front of me, and the legs completely numb. Once I moved, they seemed to be OK. Occassionally, this happens with other limbs: hands and arms. I am concerned as I feel I have problems with circulation, esp in left leg. Edema, on occasion, in left foot and dull pains, mostly at night in bed, in left leg. Could this all be related to poor circulation?

hi, i m 23. i had a varicocele surgery last year. it was an open surgery on both sides and was successful. two weeks ago i did heavy exercise and my surgery area and some vein that i felt got hurt. i checked my doctor he said ur voricocele is ok and has not come back. after two days there was no pain. but blood circulation to my legs, feet and hands got problem, specially left side of body. when i sit somewhere for a short time i feel tingling in my feet and legs. i can feel the veins having problems in delivering blood to body parts. i had the same feeling after surgery but without tingling and it went away in two days. but now it s not going away. i also wake up at night with fast heart beats. i had a blood test that was ok. i have no anxiety. please help. thank you.

When i stand up fast I almost black out every time, and sometimes i get so close to blacking out that I stop being able to really hear well (my ears ring so loud it s difficult), and my tongue tingles. Also, why does my heart beat so hard? Sometimes at night I m trying to be really calm and relaxed to meditate and stuff and my heart is beating hard enough I can t relax. I try to slow my breathing and make it regular, but I can t because it makes my hear beat harder again. And sometimes my heart beats so I can hear it in my ears (which I don t think is that uncommon) and I can feel the blood pumping really hard in my head and my arms and legs, etc. idk if i explained that right... anyway, what is my condition? I do those blood checker machine things in walmart all the time! lol, they always say normal stuff though. Could it really be as serious as a mini stroke? Why does the blacking out (and things along with it) only happen when i stand up?

Hello Doctor,
I am here to get a second opinion about my Dad's renal failure.
Name : Jai Bhagwan Sharma
Age : 61
Sex : Male
Height : 5 Feet 5 Inch
Weight : 60 KG
My dad was diabetic from last 5 year and he was taking DAONIL tablet (He didn't visit doctor after getting his prescription), one day we found that he is suddenly started behaving weird and irrelevant talk we took him to emergency and found that his blood sugar dropped to 36 later on he was fine with some medication.
But two days later (He was under observation at Yashoda Hospital Ghaziabad) suddenly his blood pressure shooted up to 15/280 level and his heart failed doctors immediately took him to Ventilator. He was on Ventilator for 3 days and that is when doctor's found that his Kidney is failing (his Creatinine reached 7 and Blood Urea 12) he went through two Dialysis and after that he was on strict diet and medication. For last one year creatinine was floating around 4-6 and Urea 80-120 but suddenly a month before it started getting worce and creatinine reached 9.2 now doctor asked him to get Dialysis done twice a week and said that Kidney is now not functioning. I would want to check if we there is any remote possibility of Kidney to react to some kind of steroids? As I believe and read in few cases it was successful.
Also wanted to know if peritoneal dialysis is better option over hemodialysis

Thanks for replying

i have routine blood work done yearly and last month my GFR came back 59, HCT 31, nml w/ cr 1.0. i have markers for sjogrens, not clinical diagnosis, chol 203, hdl 54, ldl 110 triglycerides 88 and BP is 110/70 s ballpark average, microprotein 44 in urine from 4 last sept. i have no other healthproblems. repeat GFR 58, HCT 37 bun/cr same, chol level same but CO2 20, and microprotein is down to 8 in urine (cut protein down to minimum..i was big protein eater). i am worried about GFR. only thing i can think of that could have caused this is taking ibuprofen/benadryl during a 3 week period when i broke my rib prior to having labs drawn..and i took the ibuprofen regularly. i drink lots of water always. also since feb, i have increased exercise phenomenally. is it possible to turn this GFR around? and how quick does kidney failure take? am i on a downward spiral? i have next appt w/ Primary doc in 1 month, am repeating labs til then. what can i do that i am not doing to retard/repair circumstances? is it permanent damage?..
