My DD's doctor thinks that she may have poor circulation (15 months old) does anyone know anything about it. What are signs and symptoms is it curable what not. And info would be great or even any websites thanks.
Oh she goes for testing on Thursday but I want some answers until then. They even said something about a heart murmur but said that is usually I guess you can hear it but even any ifo on that would be great to thanks.

Hmm,it's harder to tell if SOMEONE ELSE has poor circulation, I know that it can result in tingly sensations in the extremities. Cold hands and feet is also supposed to be a sign.. or no hair growth. For instance if you had no leg hair past your knees .. diabetics often have that problem. Hearing loss or tinitus (the eardrum is a thin membrane with blood vesels in it. White fingers is another one, dizziness ((does she fall down a lot?appear disoriented?) Headaches is another one but it would be hard to tell on a child I think unless she can communicate it to you. Swollen ankles. Is her skin tinged a different color in her legs or arms? Like blueish or redish.. maybe purpleish?
