Why do I have an occasional throbbing or feeling of constriction around my extremities ?

Hi I am a 36 year old female. Recently I have noticed a weird feeling in my arms and legs. It feels like I have a band around my extremities at different times. It seems to travel from arm to leg and side to side without any warning. I have also been feeling a little disoriented at times. I started working out in spite of it thinking it would go away if I lost some weight. I am a physical person who feels better except for an occasional throbbing or feeling of constriction around my extremities. I just dont know what can be wrong. It almost feels circulatory. Thank you

Hi dear
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
The symptoms you mention really dont fit into any specific condition .Still we will try to help you.I would like to have more information on when you have these symptoms and how is your food intake related to these symptoms ? Do you have any dizziness , nausea or burning sensation in your stomach .It definitely cant be side effects of the drugs you are taking.Please provide these details as a comment here for better advice.You can mail me too.
Take care.

I have an occasional throb in the center of my neck (seems to feel like my esophogus). It sort of feels like the pulse I usually can feel on the side of my neck, but it is in the center. And I can feel it without placing my fingers on it. It just seems to be a strong throb. Not constant. Noticed it last night when it woke me up and notice it today especially when my head/ chin is down slightly.

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
