Inadequate flow of blood in the body is called poor circulation. The symptoms for this is numbness or cramps in hands and leg.
In time, however, symptoms change to coldness in the limbs, extreme tiredness in the legs or even all over, pain in the limbs, redness and swelling, water retention, headache, sleep interruption, skin ulcers, loss of libido and even loss of mental acuity.
These symptoms are logical when one considers what is happening to the body when blood flow is diminished. Blood needs to travel to all of the organs and tissues in order to deliver its much needed oxygen supply. Since the blood is still being delivered but not in an optimized fashion, proper oxygen supply is missing and the above symptoms appear.
Over time, poor circulation can lead to high blood pressure which can then lead to organ damage (including the heart, kidneys and eyes) which can then lead to a stroke, a heart attack and blindness. Additionally, blood clots can form which can lead to a stroke.
So, what causes poor circulation? The most common causes are atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries), obesity, inactivity (oftentimes goes hand in hand with obesity), diabetes, varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis.
Atherosclerosis can lead to high blood pressure but high blood pressure can also cause atherosclerosis so it can be a “chicken or the egg” effect. This is why in the end, high blood pressure can both cause and be a side effect of poor circulation.
Small blood vessel damage and water retention are the problems caused by diabetes. And both these problems are known to increase blood pressure.
