Tension, Pain and Cramping Results of Poor Blood Circulation a Disease
The terms of “disease and illness” are invariably used by medical practitioners and patients all over the world. However, a few are aware of the difference between the two. According to medical science disease refers to “abnormalities of the structure and function of body organs and systems”, whereas, illness means “what the patient feels when he goes to the doctor”. But for sure illness, if not catered at the right time may lead to disease.
A lot of people may feel:-
- Fatigue, pain or cramping while working
- Even feeling of tension or cramping during inactivity
- Swelling and achiness
- Numbness or tingling
- Persistent feeling of coldness especially in feet and shoulders
How these feelings arise?
People with poor blood circulation may feel all these and much more. A very précised system of flexible tubes made by Mother Nature is responsible for the movement of different fluids including blood throughout your body. This whole network of tubes accountable for transportation of blood is known as blood circulatory system. Any condition that results in affecting this circulatory system in your body comes up with above-quoted feelings of illness at the very early stage. An abnormality of poor blood flow may lead to a degraded supply of blood to tissues, a condition normally called ischemia, as well as other serious problems.
Let me walk you through a common problem of tired and aching legs. Pain and tiredness felt in legs is a widespread problem throughout the world, but what most people need to know is that almost 90% of leg problems surface due to poor blood flow in veins of legs. Poor blood flow can progressively worsen over the period of time if not taken care of and can affect your health for the rest of your life.
To specify the problem your doctor will consider if your symptoms are connected with any of the risk factors which can be related to the poor blood circulation. Your doctor can diagnose the problem by taking blood pressure measurements, using a treadmill test, blood tests or imaging techniques. And when he is certain he may prescribe different medicines.
