Hi there, I have frezzing hands frezzing feet all the time like if they are dead they go white and I could slice them off and I wouldn't feel a thing I'm worried to death I'm 28 and dad had a heart attack back last year and now is brother two weeks ago, now they are sending me for a ecg to see if I'm ok because this is not right with hands and feet , could any one help me please...thank you,
I suppose cold hands and feet could be due to poor circulation, but that would be very unusual at your age.
As for the ECG/EKG, suppose that could be helpful, but I think the doctor needs to look at circulation too. When I get a physical exam I have had circulation to my legs (and thus feet, I assume) done because of my complaint about "tired legs". There was no circulation problem found in my case, but I still think it a test to discuss regarding your symptoms.
