In any case if you are at all worried go see a doctor..There is more information in this link:

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given then to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is nothing.

  Causes of Circulation ProblemsBad Circulation due to Atherosclerosis

The most prevalent manifestation of bad circulation is atherosclerosis which is caused by the blocking of the arteries. As you know the arteries are the blood vessels which carry the blood to the extremities. Factors heavily implicated in numerous scientific studies are milk, carbohydrates, stress and smoking. These factors cause the arteries to harden through the formation of plaque deposits, increasing blood pressure, and the heart has to pump harder to maintain blood flow. Eventually the heart has to work too hard as the arteries constrict to nothing, resulting in a heart attack. Symptoms of poor circulation are skin color - extremes of red and white, sores and rashes which won't heal, cold extremites, pins and needles and numbness and muscular pain after walking some distance.

Venous Insufficiency, Deep Vein Thrombosis, Varicose Veins and Phlebitis

Circulatory problems due to blocked arteries can be treated safely with the natural supplements mentioned above. Yet that is not the whole story, because once the blood reaches the extremities, it is still possible for the blood to pool in the legs for example. There are valves at intervals in the veins which make sure that the blood returns to the heart. Basically during exercise this system acts similar to a primitive kerosene pump. It follows that sitting or standing for long hours can cause the blood to pool in the legs leading to lack of proper circulation. In general chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins and phlebitis which is swelling and infammation leading to blood clots have one thing in common. They are all improved by reversing atherosclerosis. In other words improve poor circulation using the many wonderful supplements listed above, and through a major change in lifestyle and diet.
