Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
Please can I ask how this ischaemia has been diagnosed?
And you have ischaemia of what please?
Okay thanks. So this wouldn't cause your cramps.
Where are the cramps you are experiencing?
Okay thanks, ***** ***** a cramp?
Tingling can be due to nerve impingement or also B12 deficiency.
Musculo skeletal causes are also possible.
I would suggest physiotherapy to assess this but also b12 levels via a blood test.
Exercise wouldn't prevent this as such, so this doesn't exclude it.
If you have a pressure in your head then it is important to make sure your blood pressure is controlled.
Some medication can indeed cause the headache, but a nitrate would cause generalised dilation therefore a generalised headache.
So what you describe is not a sign of ischaemia. Brain Ischaemia is a stroke. This is not.
If this is what they have said, then yes, in a way. However if those findings are long standing then I do not think these findings are what are causing your symptoms.
I do not think this is a sign of you dying. I think this is a bit complex and you should really follow up with your doctor.
Not really no. A circulation problem is either venous or arterial. Venous circulation issues are varicose veins, they can cause legs to ache, but not much more. Arterial problems cause pain, but as you walk the blood demand increases. If you have arterial disease, then the extra oxygenated blood required cannot get into the muscles. This would then result in an ischaemic pain which is a sharp cramping pain. This would then settle with a few minutes of rest as more blood comes through.
