Heart Disease – Vascular Conditions

Home / Advanced Healthcare Directives / Heart Disease – Vascular Conditions

Cold hands though, if you’ve always had cold hands since you were a little kid you could find some pattern to your day, to your cycle, to your emotion, to your activity level. I have times when my hands are burning up and there are many reasons why I have cold hands. There are things to ask if you have significantly cold hands or feet or things. Tell your doctor about it.

One could be thyroid, always check your thyroid and a doctor does that with heart disease because it makes a big difference with your rate and some other thing. It’s a metabolizing fuel, the thyroid. So oftentimes cold hands depending on how and when, I would have to take your history are often not too big a deal.
Yea, making it worse.

And some people like my daughter … And there are the types of vascular diseases, and things where people constrict their vessels and those are significant diseases that are directly cardiac, they are vessel diseases. So it depends how severe it is. If it’s debilitating, you are just someone that … that’s the way you deal with your nervousness for example, so people get sweaty hands and warm hands and some people don’t. But it is not something to completely ignore.

But in general I wouldn’t worry too much if you had it your whole life, you know what I mean. Now if you hve sudden onset cold or hands are sweaty, then that’s different. Anything that’s a sudden onset that you didn’t have before, that’s a good question, ask your doctor, concerning your history.

No, they are not. And that’s a good … I know what you’re saying .You’re smiling cause there’s no … It is true, this is a thing about trying to answer things completely. Nerve and veins run together in bundles. So if you have some significant issue, one person over here might say, well that’s not true cause in my case I had a vein problem and the nerves were bad too or the lymphatics which run with it. They are next to each other so certainly when things are next to each other, they can affect each other. But tingling, numbing depends on when, where and how. Almost always it’s nerves. That’s what gives you tingling, period. And that nervous sensation is usually interrupted by compression.

So as we lose muscle mass too, we also have more nerve compression because we sit on nerves, we lean on nerves or we sleep on nerves and so I have to ask your history and where the nerves are because nerves are like a wire to a light bulb. It’s either the light bulb, it’s either the wire or the switch. That’s it.

So I would have to ask you and I would have to analyze that route. First things first, nerve first. If you are diabetic, that’s different, neuropathy it is still nerve. Is it both sides, is it one side, all those questions, doctor questions they are. Now I know many patients that are smarter than they so I’m not saying it’s not all of you. It’s just about education. So talk to your doctor. Don’t underestimate your capacity to understand the medication but always address it with humility because it is complicated and as soon as you think you understand something that change becomes harder. If you are certain that you know it, then you don’t change as easily when it’s modified. And a lot of times many questions when it comes to health modify over time the explanation changes.
So try and understand the disease. That’s what you want to do over two sessions. I don’t … you are probably going to leave with no specific knowledge, what did I do there for 45 minutes and as you think about it … but what I want is to may be in the back of your mind, there’s a question about your health that comes up. Even if you don’t think it’s related … you’re not sure about tingling or you are not sure about cold hands, whatever, ask!
