how long have you had these symptoms?
do you have any prior medical problems?
where are you having lack of strength?
166 is the upper
yes, bladder stones and breast tiny spots
lack of strength in legs
166 is not super high blood pressure.
cutting down salt can help decrease blood pressure
and loosing weight and exercising can help as well.
have you been checked for problems like diabetes?
are you able to exercise?
I do not have diabetes
that is good.
are you overweight?
no not at all
being overweight can increase risks for high blood pressure
and can put extra weight on your legs.
good, I'm glad you are not over weight.
are you able to exercise and strengthen your legs?
sometimes if you don't exercise, your legs can get weak and you can have worse circulation.
I find it difficult to stand on my feet
you need to see a neurology doctor.
sometimes a pinched nerve in your lower back can cause leg weakness and numbness of your toes.
a herniated disk in your lower back can pinch nerves to cause these symptoms.
do you have any back pain?
you should see your doctor and get a nerve exam.
and possibly an MRI scan of your back.
