Can anyone help me? I am having very bad circulation and my feet are staying COLD, purple and "dead"... when I go to bed they warm up and circulation improves, and then during the day they either
a)will warm up and swell real bad
stay cold/ purple and I feel like the blood isn't flowing to my feet correctly (well, rather I know it isn't- due to the RSD)
but how can I fix this problem? Anything meds/ herbs/ supplements or any other ideas on how to help the circulation problem?
I have tried keeping my feet real warm (several pairs of socks) but I think the real problem is that from the RSD the blood vessels are being constricted and that is why this is happening...
With my hands I would just be sure to move them around when I felt like they were real cold, purple and losing circulation; that did help, and I was also sure not to hold my arms down at my sides when I'd walk because that would make it worse (including making the pain worse as the circulation got worse).
Has anyone tried ginkgo biloba, or something like this: http://www.herbalremedies.com/ahh-03.html
