Hi all. Would love some thoughts on what is going on with me. Started about 4 days ago with a feeling of blood pooling in my feet.(similar to having stood on concrete all day).
This feeling has lasted all day and night for 4 days now. Also I get red splotchy blood swollen hands. The scariest symptom is when my head fills with blood(that's how it feels anyway). The sensation is the same as doing a hand stand or hanging upside down for a long time, but lasts for hours on end.
I am afraid I am going to pop a blood vessel or have a stroke. I am 29 and not overweight. Not sure whats going on, but would love some help. THANKS

  • I have had the same sensations for 8 years. It is scary. I worry that my veins and arteries will harden. I think I am about to get the diagnosis of behcets syndrome and/or sjogrens. Both are vasculitis.
