Q: What are the symptoms of poor circulation?
A: If someone has poor circulation in their feet, they may not have any symptoms at all. Patients who do develop symptoms related to poor circulation in the feet can suffer from the pain of the toes, the pain of the feet, or pain or cramping upon walking, specifically in their calves or in the back of their thighs that would usually be relieved by rest. Other symptoms include discoloration and numbness. Diabetic foot ulcers affect patients with diabetes who also have poor circulation.
