Numbness

Hi.  I'm 40 and have been have numbness and tingling in feet.  I'm getting tested for artery disease today.  Do any of these symptoms match up.    Blood pressure is up and down alot.  Feet numb and legs up to buttocks.  No cramping but heavy feeling in mlm leg.  Feeling tired   they had problems finding pulse in foot but found it with some doppler thing.   I had a ultrasound to rule out blood clots and that was fine.

    Hi! Of course I am not your doctor, so i cannot say for sure what your symptoms indicate. They will be able to diagnose you properly with the right tests. They do sound like my symptoms to some degree. A good place to look is heart.org/PAD - it is an excellent resource for all of your questions in conjunction with your doctor. If you are diagnosed with PAD I highly recommend getting a vascular specialist if you do not have one. 

    Good luck with your testing today! Keep us posted and let us know how you are doing! We are here for you!
