: My wife had a minor stroke almost ten years ago for which she was put on verapamil and told to take 75mg aspirin a day.
: Recently she has been having problems with cold feet -
: one of her feet often feels considerably colder than the other,top of the foot feels dead- no feeling, and the leg of that foot is whiter than the other one.
: She thinks it could be due to a circulation problem and has heard that gingko biloba may help with circulation problems but has also heard that G B may interact with other blood thinners such as the aspirin
: she is taking.
: She is considering trying G B but would welcome some opinions as to how good G B is and whether it is advisable to try it or not.

hi,
i to had a stroke going on 8 years ago. my affected foot is often colder than the other one.
my stroke was caused by a crushing accident i take no meds. for blood thinning although i do take 1 baby asprin each day.
I'm lucky enough or unlucky depends on how you look at it my property is lined with ginko trees.
they are pretty to look at the leaves turn beautiful colors, but the berries they make the pills from are absolutely disqusting there is no way on this earth I'd ever put them in my body intentionally they smell like old garbage left in the sun a few days.
i know a lot of people that their systims can't tolerate them let her try them if you like but take this as being for warned.Larry
