Pain in the Hands or Legs!

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, MCh - Vascular Surgery, F.V.E.S
Vascular Surgeon, Bangalore
Pain in the Hands or Legs!

Problems with the arteries and veins present in the hands or legs can lead to vascular disorders. The arteries carry blood from the heart to other parts of the body in order to deliver nutrients and oxygen. The veins carry the blood back to the heart, after the nutrients have been used up. If these blood vessels of the arteries or veins become blocked or narrowed, it can lead to a vascular blockage.

A vascular blockage that occurs in the hands or legs comes under the category of Peripheral Artery Disease or PAD. These type of disorders are less common in the upper extremities of the arms or hands than in the lower extremities of legs. Few of the signs for the same are:

  1. Pain and difficulty in movement due to decreased blood flow
  2. Numbness or weakness of leg or fingertips
  3. Sores on the toes or feet
  4. If the blockage is deep, symptoms of redness, swelling, extreme pain or cramping can be experienced
  5. Abnormal color changes in the fingertips
  6. Ulcers or wounds that don’t heal
  7. Skin sensitivity problems when in cold temperatures

How can it be diagnosed?
The blockage can be detected by various methods namely-

  1. Physical Examination – Your doctor may find decreased pulse at armpit, wrist or fingers, full veins, masses, wounds or gangrene.
  2. Doppler or Ultrasound examination to determine the blood flow in the arteries and veins
  3. MRI Scan of the affected area to pay special attention to the blood vessels
  4. Cold Stress Test
  5. Arteriography to show clear blood vessel details
  6. Angiography to map blockages and narrowing of the arteries

What are the Risk Factors for Peripheral Artery Disease?
An individual is at risk for developing vascular blockages in the hands or legs if one or more of the following factors are present:

  1. Smoking
  2. Diabetes
  3. Heredity Factors – A personal or family history of blood vessel disease
  4. High blood pressure
  5. High cholesterol
  6. Aging – People aged above 50 years and older are more prone to vascular blockage

Can it be treated?
Treatments for vascular blockage can vary depending on the age, cause of the blockage, intensity and overall well-being.

Treatments can include:

  1. Self-care – Reducing risk factors and making lifestyle changes to quit smoking, sedentary life or diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol management can reverse symptoms of vascular disease.
  2. Medications – A variety of drugs can be prescribed to lower the risk and progression of narrowing blood vessels or prevent blood clotting.
  3. Interventional Procedures – Minimally invasive surgery like saloon angioplasty, stenting or removal of artery plaque build-up.
  4. Surgery – If the blockage is severe, surgery may be performed to lessen the vessel narrowing, reconstruct the artery or tie it off, depending on the circumstances.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 84 yrs. Old, and have varicose veins for last 10-12 years on both legs, without any pain. But I have often scratching on foot-joints of eczema. Can this be due to veins? What creams are best for this?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, MCh - Vascular Surgery, F.V.E.S
Vascular Surgeon, Bangalore
Please use compression stockings. It will reduce the itching. Any moisturizer will help soothe the skin. If the eczema is bad, please consult a skin specialist. However, if you don’t wear compression stockings, the symptoms will not reduce just with creams.

All About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder!

All About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder!

PTSD is a neurological disorder which affects individuals after experiencing severe traumatic situations. The individuals find it difficult to cope with such situations and often have flashbacks of those moments of trauma. Stress, as a result of the trauma wrecks the normal nervous functioning of the individuals. PTSD can have the following symptoms:

Re experiencing:

  1. Flashbacks of the traumatic event
  2. Nightmares, which are repetitive and severely distressing
  3. Images from the traumatic event intruding during the day
  4. Reminders of the event provoking distress

Avoidance or rumination:

  1. Those suffering from PTSD avoid being reminded of the trauma, such as people, situations or circumstances associated with the event. They try to suppress memories associated with the event.
  2. Many others ruminate excessively and prevent themselves from coming to terms with it.

Hyper arousal or emotional numbing:

  1. Hyper vigilance for threat
  2. Exaggerated sterile response
  3. Irritability
  4. Difficulty concentrating
  5. Sleep problems
  6. Difficulty experiencing emotion
  7. Emotional detachment from others
  8. Giving up activities which mattered before the trauma
  9. Amnesia for salient aspects of the trauma

How to manage PTSD?

The following tips will help to come to terms with your traumatic episode and ease stress:

  1. If symptoms are mild, then observing the patient is preferred
  2. If symptoms are chronic, then trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) proves to be beneficial
  3. Alternative treatments include eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
  4. Comorbid symptoms such as depression, general anxiety and alcohol or substance abuse are secondary to PTSD. PTSD should be treated first and then the associated symptoms should be addressed.
  5. Mindfulness meditation (not a treatment option) helps in recognizing cognitive dissonances and affected thought patterns and aids in recognizing and overcoming their influence.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

You have not mentioned about the competency of the “junctions “. If they are incompetent, you will need intervention for the healing of ulcers or else it will keep recurring. If the junctions are competent, get a Mr. venogram of ivc and both lower limbs done to check for any outflow instruction in the deep veins.

I think I have peripheral artery disease can you suggest what to do for getting rid out of it.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, MCh - Vascular Surgery, F.V.E.S
Vascular Surgeon, Bangalore
It depends on what your complaints are. The basic investigation for the peripheral arterial disease is "Arterial Duplex scan of the affected lower limb" Depending on the doppler scan report, the vascular surgeon will assess and advise regarding the further management.

Please get a venous Doppler scan and consult a vascular surgeon sir. The scan will determine the stage of your varicose veins and if intervention is needed or not. Take care.

Being HIV positive is not a contraindication for treatment of varicose veins. Most of the cities in India have trained vascular surgeons. Please consult one in or near the place of your residence and get the treatment done. Take care.

Hi, varicose veins cannot be removed without exercise. Life style changes like avoiding standing for long will help in control of the varicose veins from getting into the complications.

I have varicose veins veins problem. After pregnancy it never gone. And I have less hemoglobin. What should I do? I became fat .how to reduce weight due to varicose veins I can not walk k alot. Even I am not working out in gym for veins problem.

You can walk or exercise as much as you can in varicose veins problem. Losing fat is a different thing. It's not due to varicose veins. Just avoid standing for long and keep pillows below your leg when you go to bed.
