Q: What can happen if I have low blood circulation in my muscles? – A.C.

A: Depending on the arteries that are affected and where the blockage is, different muscle groups can be affected:

  • Buttock and hip
  • Thigh
  • Calf (most common)
  • Foot (less common)

Some people describe burning or numbness. There also can be severe blockages with no pain at all. Often this is because the body grows blood vessels that “bypass” the blockages, called collateral circulation.
